Some Donations!

We are on a roll! Three times in one week?! We're certainly trying to make up for lost time :) We'd like to keep you as involved as possible, or at the very least let you understand what we are working on.

  • Since our pilot project will take place in the Dominican Republic, we spoke with the Consulate of the Dominican Republic to see if they would be willing to help with our project. The good news is: they didn't shut us down! The bad news: well, there isn't really any bad news.... We were asked to write a letter to the Consul explaining who we are, what we want to accomplish in the DR and most importantly, what we'd like their help with. We will be working on the letter, and will keep you abreast on how things go.
  • Jahangir K. Khan has pledged to donate customized tee shirts for the Camelia Institute. At present, we have 4 custom tee shirts, 4 hats and 2 tote bags. These personalized items were purchased by Lutful and Jennifer to give the organization an identity. Aside from that, because we are not an established nonprofit, and don't yet have a fiscal sponsor (we're working on it), we want to have legitimacy when asking for donations and distributing the donations. Mr. Khan- THANK YOU! 

Okay, I think that's it for now. Until next time!
