Launch of a new donations website for Burma

Givetoburma.org - donate to BurmaLast Wednesday evening I received an appeal email from a Burmese friend, Su Su, in Chiang Mai. Following this, between 5pm Thursday and 5pm Friday I worked with Su Su to design, build and register a PayPal account and domain for the website www.givetoburma.org. We got it up online, and then raced to a Burmese support gathering at the Three Kings Monument in Chiang Mai.

They have taken about $1,500 dollars in the first 30 hours it has been live, and yesterday sent more than $1000 inside Burma straight to the monks that have been protesting. More soon…
