From a note from filmmaker Smriti Mundra:

My friends Shruti Ganguly and Riddhika Jesrani have put together a fund-raising organization called Build Burma in response to the recent disaster in Myanmar. They have a $10,000 fund-raising target on behalf of Doctors Without Borders, a reputable aide organization with an infrastructure in Myanmar (read: the money goes directly to disaster relief, not a corrupt government or NGO). I sincerely hope you will all donate even $10 to the cause. There are 561 of you on this list so if everyone donates we will be more than half way to our goal. Just go to http://www.buildburma.org and follow the prompts.

<<< Well, a lot more than 561 folks here, folks, so let’s see if we can help. I just did my part and make a small donation – your turn, everyone: http://www.buildburma.org

To read more about the situation in Myanmar or show support, join the Facebook group (search BuildBurma.org) and check out the website.
