    I’ve been getting a few questions about sending donations; for me, the biggest challenge was finding an organization I wanted to trust with money. Personally, I am giving funds to two foundations which I have seen in action : Manavata, the group I traveled to the flood-hit area with, and Sphoorti, the children’s home I have been working at regularly. If you would like to donate, http://www.manavata.org & http://www.sphoorti.org have information for online bank transfers posted on their websites. Use your country-specific bank information; funds from the USA for Sphoorti should go to the JJ Metta Memorial Foundation.
