Thanks for forwarding my last email request on how to send non-monetary donations for Pakistan. Based on calls/emails received from some people, I feel that my last message was not clear enough. I have updated the following donation request with necessary information. Please forward it again.
Hidaya Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and charitable organization with FEIN 77-0502583. In addition to monetary donations, they are planning to send several 40 ft. ocean freight containers with relief supplies to Pakistan. Donations of bulk medicines and medical supplies, traditional Pakistani clothes, shoes, pots/pans, toys and school supplies for children in camps etc. are being collected. If you have any new or used (in good condition) cloths, shoes, toys, pots/pans, school and medical supplies, you can package the items in a box and ship by FedEx, UPS or USPS to following address. They will send a receipt for tax purposes.

Additonal information about this organization can be found at their website www.hidaya.org. Please note that I am not a member, affiliate or representative of this organization. I just came across their initiative and wanted to share this information with community members. I am sure we all have lots of extra stuff in our closets and around the house. In this time of need, let's do our best to collect this extra stuff and help out our brothers and sisters in need.
Please donate generously.
