Sorry if this doesn't belong in Information.. the old site had a thread on this and wanted to post some new information. And I sincerely hope this is not inappropriate to post?

Urgent need in the city of Tyuchkova (Moscow Region). A home for children is in need of the following:

Refridgerator
Sheets/bedding
Clothing from 5-16 years old
Sports Equipment
Beds/Mattresses
Dressers/bookcases

They would be thrilled for any contributions in any condition. This facility is being helped by an American non-profit (non-religious) organization so any American citizen donating can receive a tax-deduction receipt. We will pick up anywhere in the Moscow region.

Thank you!

Would you be interested in an old hi-fi (modern-looking, but about 10 yrs old). CD, tape deck, radio,... CD player has occasional temporary non-working moments).

We also have a box of old clothes, not sure how appropriate for kids, but it sounds as if you may know how to best use them.

May have a few other things to throw in. Our stuff just arrived from Brazil, and we are still clearing through what we want, and what we do not, so may not be for immediate pick up, but if you are interested, please let me know.

Thanks

Russiabear: no problem that you posted it here for now. :)

I think that charities need a (sticky) new thread or even folder. I will see what I can do.

Lesston: you have posted your contact info twice already, including an email address (which we normally don't allow), and you hijacked a thread. We will make sure that charities will get the deserved attention. But please read the forum rules, ok? :)

All,
Please note: the charities folder is up.
I think it is best if you re-post your initiatives there.
Contact info allowed.
cheers
