The taco shell is a waffle How sweet is that?
I work for Aid Still Required, a nonprofit based in Los Angeles doing most of our work in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Darfur and Haiti. If you are interested in our mission, I have it copied below and feel free to check out our website.
Aid Still Required works to shift the way we think about emergency relief by launching large awareness campaigns with the help of dozens of celebrities around the anniversaries of different environmental disasters. Right now, close to 70% of relief funds are spent in the first 3 months without much thought going into long term redevelopment. As a result, they get thousands of people (or hundreds of thousands) who are kept alive with emergency medical care, water, food and shelter, but who months later still can’t rebuild in a sustainable way. Clearly, immediate relief is necessary, but they need to rethink the way it is administered to be most efficient and effective over the long term.
ASR then uses these campaigns to raise funds for programs that are focused on environmental protection, long term independent sustainability, and gender equality. They are working with those communities who have been forgotten and they hope that what they do will influence other international NGOs to rethink the way they approach their work as well.
There is nothing better than receiving something in the mail, just because. When it isn’t your birthday, a holiday or an announcement about someone’s new house/baby/wedding/etc.
And it is even better when it is from your 94 year old grandfather and has giraffes on it. Thanks for the
snail giraffe mail Grandpa!
