We would like to start a drive to help earthquake victims (especially students) - - but we're new to Kunming. Does anyone have experience in this regard - - Red Cross contacts - - Government requirements??
Between the two of us, we are fluent in English and Chinese so can respond either way.
Thanks for any info.
Respond by e-mail or phone:
Let me translate that last one for everyone in case they missed it elsewhere: You can donate 1 or 2 RMB by sending a text message to 1069999301 with a "1" or a "2" in the message body. I just did it and it works - you'll get a followup message in Chinese thanking you for your donation.
oh yeah. the donation goes to China Red Cross for the immediate effort in Sichuan
There are plans for an earthquake benefit event in the coming days... watch this space and the GoKunming blog for details.
does anyone know if NGOs working in sichuan on disaster relief right now? thanks!
