    In light of the difficult covid situation in India, with a new covid variant and surging cases, please join the Yellow Ajah as we come together to raise funds for various organizations that have requested donations from all over the world. As of 5/3/21, we have raised a total of $80.36 (USD) for the following organizations:​

    1. Athrout x Kashmir Box: providing daily rations AND medical supplies to Kashmir that is systematically underfunded and neglected, and currently has a ban on most NGOs ability to receive foreign funds. Athrout has found a fantastic workaround in a time of dire need.

    I assume we just donate to one or more and let someone know? I will participate.

    Tangent but related: a local teacher is selling lotus polymer clay earrings, with proceeds going to help in COVID-19 relief efforts in India. We worked together at summer school one year, and both worked as ESOL teachers in my district for years. She's doing this in honor of two of her students who are from India. It's probably not as direct as a donation, but I think it's awesome that she's stepping up to help and felt like plugging her efforts here as they are similarly aligned.

    I also donated to the #2 option above. Thanks for sharing this information!

    (Now off to track...:look)

    It sure is! :D3

    Thanks, everyone. I wasn't sure if people wanted to all join together and choose one or two organizations to focus on, or if people just wanted to choose their own groups to donate to.

    Also, the Google form tracking thing is for the Diaspora Co. Raffle entries, but the raffle closed on 5/7.

    Do any of the aforementioned charities need any masks? I have close to 200 that I'd be happy to donate
