"TSUNAMI - Appeal for your help."
2005-01-03 until 2005-12-31
Roger Cummiskey
Dublin, , IE Ireland

I was sitting in relative luxury having eaten and drank too much over a number of days when, flopped before the TV, lazily expecting to be entertained, I flipped through the channels and it became obvious that the Tsunami disaster was getting increasingly worse. I could sit around no longer and felt that I should try to do something.

Firstly, through my web site ( www.rogercummiskey.com ) I decided to ask for donations towards relief for the survivors by way of donations via PayPal. But my site does not get sufficient visitors to make any impression of the required effect. Secondly, as I have about 900 names and addresses in my address book I decided to circularise those people with a non-emotive and non-pressurized appeal for donations of money again via PayPal.

The disaster speaks for itself through our TV's, newspapers and radios.

I do not know what will come in but all contributors will be kept updated.

I will transfer any cash that comes in by 14th January to my friend Fergus Ahern, Accountant, Boyle, Co Roscommon, who will be charged with passing the funds on to a suitable and relevant charity. There will not be any expenses paid to me. TSUNAMI-ART-AUCTION-IRELAND@hotmail.com

Fergus’s Phone details home 071 966 7069 work 071 966 2215 mobile 086 242 6076 (Outside Ireland +353 and drop 0)

An Art Auction is now being arranged for the end of January in order to raise funds.
