Generosity and Compassion Noted

Gentle Reader,

Spending a little time with the marvelous people at the Best Friend Library, I'm reminded that while there are real, very real indeed, challenges surrounding the refugees and displaced persons along the Thai / Burma border, there are many kind and generous people who are stepping up to make a difference.    Here is a note from Garrett Kostin, the manager of the Chiang Mai branch of the Best Friend library.

Dear members and supporters,
Although Chaa Nay Choo remains in critical condition in the Intensive Care Burn Unit, we look forward to the day when he will know of the incredible, swift outpouring of generosity and support that has followed the devastating fire at the Mae Surin Refugee Camp on 22 March.

The Best Friend is very happy to share details about the amazing response we have had to date to our fundraising campaign in support of Chaa Nay Choo and the other Karenni refugees from Burma affected by the fire, and we would like to take this opportunity to recognize some of very compassionate individuals, organizations, and companies that have mobilized in support of the refugees.

Please read the full post on our website at this address:
May you all have a wonderful weekend!
Very best wishes,
