>...I am helping promote a fandom-wide auction, help_pakistan, along the lines of help_haiti for the recent flooding tragedy that has affected Pakistan. You've likely come across it in the media but if not, the recent series of floods has displaced over 20 million people, over a quarter of whom have received no aid so far and the international response has been immensely sluggish.

All the information regarding the charities and the process is at the community (help_pakistan) and the primary mod (help_pk_mod) can be contacted by PM or email [helppkmod[at]yahoo.ca] for any queries.
