Subject: Disaster Relief for Quake victims
Dated: Jan 31, 2001
Dear Member,

We would like to thank all of you who attended Saraswati Puja and
contributed their used clothes for the needy in India. We hope you
have also enjoyed the cultural programs by children and all the local
talent we have in the Bay Area. We value your association with our
group, and wish you will show solidarity in future too.

Calamity strikes without warning and this time it has affected
Gujarat. Death figures are unconfirmed, but some reports indicate it
might be as high as 100,000 - a staggering figure. Destruction has
been complete in some areas. The lucky few who have survived need your
help.

To avoid any more Email spam, here are a few links which have
information how you you can make a tax-deductible contribution to help
the quake victims. Please feel free to explore and contribute. Many
sites offer the convenience of paying by credit-card.
