Burma: Grace Under Pressure May 21, 2008Posted by Geoffrey Hiller in Burma.
Buddhist Nuns. Pegu, Burma 2000
With the help of musician/ethnomusicalogist Rick Heizman I photographed and produced Burma: Grace Under Pressure eight years ago.
BURMA DISASTER – AND WHAT WE CAN DO.
My good friend Rick sent this email. Please forward to your friends and family.
AM LEAVING JUNE 1 FOR BURMA, AND WILL BE BRINGING IN MONEY AND SUPPLIES TO VARIOUS EXISTING PROJECTS, NEW PROJECTS, AND UNEXPECTED PROJECTS.
I’m in contact daily with “connections”in Burma who are already helping in many ways, and sending me info. IF YOU WANT TO HELP – HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO: (in the next week)
1) pass this information around to your coworkers and executives, family, friends, and circles.
2) Collect funds from the actions above, and I will transport them to immediate needs in Burma.
Two ways to contribute:
1) Write a check to: BADA (which is Burmese American Democratic Alliance, a 501c3, and I’m a board member (or contribute on the website: www.badasf.org) A donation to BADA is tax deductible
2) write a check to my fund:
‘Rick Heizman Helping Burma Fund’ I am not a 501c3 yet, so it’s not tax deductible. The slight advantage to #2, for me, is: Since ALL aid money for Burma has to be carried in by people like me, it gives me more time to convert it all, rather than go through some time consuming bureaucracy to process and issue funds – and time is critical.
