I don't see a fund for France yet, but I did find these on NTM's website:

Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund. Goal is $100,000 and they have collected $17,418.

Disaster Relief Emergency Fund. Goal is $50,000 and they have collected $17,851.

And the previously mentioned Papua New Guinea Drought Relief Fund. This one is not showing any goal amount or any amount received. I wonder why? It just says, "This project has an ongoing need". They have also broken it down nicely for the compassionate hearts, the way some other fund raisers do it: "A donation of just $13 will provide roughly enough rice for 12 people for 3 days."



O.k. Tribers here is the challenge. Take your weekly food budget for 12 people for 3 days, buy $13 dollars of rice and live on that, then send the balance to the Papua New Guinea Drought Relief Fund.

I guarantee there will be a lot of slimmer Tribers and a very quickly growing fund :lol:

Does some bright spark want to calculate how much the average American spends on food in 3 days?

I am so glad you are laughing at this clever nonsense, because this is the beauty of Fanda Eagles. On one thread we are sharing the effects of deep grief and then with a click of a mouse we can laugh till our sides split.

I love comic geniuses, but my big concern is that so often their comic genius is born out of deep personal tragedy and that behind the mask can often lie a tortured soul for whom comedy is their gift to others and in some way themselves.

How many people read these marvellous pieces and just take them into their day, never stopping to really appreciated the time and talent that goes into them? How many people look at the fantastic images on the "perspective" thread and derive a better understanding of their own lives?

Imagine what it would be like to not have such posts. We have much to be thankful for.

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play

And in the streets, the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken

And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died

Don McLean in American Pie

A most interesting article has come to my attention today.

A couple in Kansas who donated money to Gospel For Asia, and has learned that only a small amount of donated money was actually used for the people and purposes for whom it was intended, has filed a lawsuit. They hope to turn this into a class action lawsuit, which could include possibly hundreds of thousands of donors who gave money to this huge (and apparently very deceptive) "ministry".

Some donors apparently DO care how their contributions are used.
