Help Central Sulawesi!

Posted by somtam2000 on 3/10/2018 at 19:53 admin

Hi all,

As you have probably heard, last week there was a large earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi near the town of Palu. The damage has been catastrophic—you can see some images of the devastation here.

Erin Cook is a Southeast Asia focussed journalist who runs a weekly newsletter covering the region called Dari Mulut Ke Mulut (if you have an interest in the region, it is absolutely worth the money—you can sign up here)

She decided to offer complimentary membership if people sent her a screenshot of a donation they had made towards the relief effort.

You can read her suggested list of organisations here.

We got all inspired by this, got in touch with Erin, and decided to match her offer.

You make a donation, we’ll extend your Travelfish account for free.

We mentioned it in the newsletter and we've been gobsmacked by the response—over $2,000 worth of donations so far—and that is in just two and a bit days!!!

So, this is the deal. If you are an existing Travelfish member, please consider making a donation to one of the organisations on Erin’s list, then email me (at stuartmcdonald@travelfish.org) a screenshot of the donation, and I’ll either upgrade your account for a year, or give you another year if you already have paid membership.

Every donation counts!

Thank you

Just a quick update on this—we’ve now seen over $4,000 in donations for agencies working in Sulawesi so far.
