The Goal of Fandom Against Famine
When we set out to raise money through fandom to aid relief efforts for the famine in East Africa, we deliberately did not set a goal that we hoped to reach. It may seem like an odd way to run a fundraiser, but our goal is to help as many people and as much as we can, whether that is a single person or a hundred people.
Obviously, helping a hundred is ideal, but helping one is just as important. And often, by helping one, you will help more than you expect.
The United Nations says that 640,000 Somali children are malnourished and at least 29,000 have already died. You can't help all of them, that much is obvious, but you can help some.
So, please, if you can afford to help one or a hundred, do it.
