Junal on the run

Archive for the ‘Humanity’ Category

I think you can remember a post how Tamanna took an initiative for Sidr affected people. I was surprised just for the initiative that she took for our people. Well, this initiative has seen the success light! She had to hold a Microphone in front of camera to get the attention of her campus students. Later that video was shown in whole campus to make those students understand how Sidr really affected Bangladeshi people. She sold chocolates [that she got from a chocolate factory after requesting them] to raise the fund. When she was done, she had to go through several lengthy processes and finally she sent the money through a Canadian Aid organization.

I wish, somehow our TV channels can show this news – because to me it’s not a simple story.

Tamanna, requested me not to post any news regarding this. She didn’t want to let people know what she did for us. Sorry Tamanna, I couldn’t keep this promise.

Hat goes off to Tamanna. Thanks from bottom of my heart!

I would like to share this email to you all that I have just got from my cousin Tamanna from Canada. I couldn’t stop myself once I read this forwarded email. She has done something that we [well, at least me] can’t even do it from here. I better paste her email here that she wrote to Mr.Morelli [her teacher]

“Hey Mr. Morelli,

Thanks again for dinner Friday, it was great. And thanks again for all your help for the planning and everything for H4H. It obviously couldn’t be done without the help of you or Mrs. Gambioli.

Anyway, I wanted to talk to you about MAD. I want to join, i know it’ll be great working with you again.

And i wanted to propose something.

First, just want to let you know that my home country is Bangladesh, although i was born here. ANYWAY, i dont know if you have been listening to the news, radio or reading the paper lately, but a HUGE tropical cyclone ripped through Bangladesh this past Thursday. And this cyclone has been “the country’s deadliest cyclone in a decade”, and the death toll has reached approx. 2,300 and it’s been only a couple days since, and thousands are still left homeless.

I was wondering maybe if we can fundraise some money at school through MAD, i dont know if this organization or club works fundraise money for this type of need, but maybe we can try?

I know how generous the school had been for raising money for the Katrina disaster, and maybe we can help overseas as well.

I dont know how it’s gonna be done, how the money is going to be sent, i’ve never done this type of thing before. But i would just like to help, even if it might make the littlest difference in helping my country.

I’ll come and see you sometime tomrrow, and you can let me know if it’ll be possible to do something for this natural disaster.

Thnx sir. See you tomorrow.

p.s. here are some online articles regarding this tragedy —

Well this is what she wrote to MR.Morelli.

in my email she wrote..
“Proposed something, I’ll let you know how it works out..i would really love to help…even if it makes the smallest difference! ”

I already informed her that I’m here in Bangladesh to help her anyway. She really touched me all the way. It’s a great example of humanity. I respect her patriotism. And I like to thanks her from bottom of my heart for this excellent initiative.

Thank you Tamanna !
