Description

Hi friends,

As you may have seen in the news, many South Asian countries are now facing severe flood. This has contributed to the displacement of millions and death of over a thousand people! Even though flooding is nothing new to Bangladesh, this year's monsoon has submberged a third of my country's land.

Helpless as we all are to mother nature, I wanted to do a small fundraiser among friends to raise money for the NGOs which are currently working in the field to supply fresh water and staple food to the people affected by the flood.

We usually spend around ~$25 for a dinner and drink out with friends. I hope you'd donate the cost for one such dine out to this fundraiser and come spend an evening with me and Oli at our home as we cook you a delicous Bangladeshi dinner!

The fundraiser (or the ticket sale:p) will end at the end of this month as I hope to send the money within a few weeks. But you can redeem your dinner voucher until the end of this year (or maybe even next if you are away)!

Suggested price: $25 (anything more is appreciated)

I would suggest sending me the donations by Venmo to @Lamiya-Mowla with tag "Food for flood" to faciliate my account-keeping (I am trying to avoid the high transaction fees that gofundme/eventbrite puts on donations).

Dinner dates are TBD. Depending on how many friends donate, there will be mutiple dinner dates to choose from, till December 2017.

As always, we love to meet new people so please feel free to send this invitation to other friends.

Hugs,

Lamiya

PS. All donations will be added to the fundraiser. Dinner is on the house!
