Your donations will be used to buy diapers, baby formula or any other items that they tell me they need when I get there in May.
Dear Iranian.com readers,
I am going to be travelling to Iran in May and my final destination will be (my hometown) the city of Isfahan. Usually, when I travel back to Iran every few years, I set aside some money for a good cause which I pass along to person(s) whom my family know are in need.
A few months ago, I asked my family if there was an orphanage in Isfahan and if there was any kind of help they needed. They checked into this and said that there is in fact an orphanage and they need and appreciate any kind of help they can get. At the time, I did send some money which was used to buy food items for the children. Now, that I am going back again, I am going to follow what Sadaf Kiani's did a few years ago and seek additional help from the readers so this help is extended beyond what I can personally do.
At this moment, I would like to know if you can assist in any way. The amount is up to you and can be as little as $1 to whatever your think you can afford. Currently, I would like to simply get an email from you with a committment on how much you think you can donate. This money can be either mailed to me or directly deposited into a bank account which I can provide to you, if you are interested in helping.
Please, be aware that I will obviously not be able to offer any kind of tax recepits since I don't run a charity organization and am doing this on my own. I will do my absolute best to account for every single dollar that is collected and spent and will provide recepits of whatever that is purchased for the orphanage. I understnad that (sadly there is always a trust issue when dealing with our fellow countrymen but this is something that I cannot resolve if you feel that you cannot trust me. All i can say is that my name is Abbas Soltani and currently reside in Toronto, Canada. I have been a contributor to Iranian.com since its early days and you can read articles that I have posted in the past.
I am going to also take photographs and videos (if possible and permitted) which I will provide to Jahanshah who can then post on the site. Additionally, this is the first time I am collecting money for a good cause so if this is something you have done already, I would appreciate any advice or comments that you may have. You can send your emails to me at email@example.com.
If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you wish to speak on the phone, let me know so I can provide you with a phone number.
