Shan State Earthquake Relief project

The Best Friend Library, based in Chiang Mai is already up and running with a fundraising and relief project for victims of last week’s earthquake in Shan State. With the death toll almost certainly already over two hundred, the Burmese government seem to be doing nothing other than mount a cover up and block the activities of journalists and outside relief organisations.

According to the Best Friend’s web site, money raised will be provided to organizations that have direct access to the affected areas inside Shan State, and can help the people directly. it won’t be provided to the central government.

The Best Friend have already designed and produced a fund raising T-shirt with all proceeds going to earthquake relief.

Shirts priced at 280 Bt or $14 (USD) each, are available from The Best Friend Library on Nimanheminda Soi 13 from 4th April. See their website for other methods to order them.

Since many owners of Gay bars in Chiang Mai rely on Shan boys to stay in business, it would be great to see all of them get behind this campaign by buying these T shirts for their staff to wear and also by selling the T shirts in their bars.

Or you can donate to the Best Friend directly – see link on out title bar.
