A Reading to Support the people of Gaza

Support the International Committee of the Red Cross's activities in the Gaza Strip! 

Leora Skolkin-Smith and Beverly Gologorsky have organized a group reading to raise funds for medical supplies for the people of Gaza. 
WHEN: February 7th, 2009, 7-9 pm

PLACE: McNally Jackson Bookstore, 52 Prince Street  New York, NY 10012   


A partial list of the participants reading that evening include Alix Kates Shulman, Elizabeth Strout, Jan Clausen, Chuck Wachtel, Wesley Brown, Mary Morris, Barbara Schneider and many others. 

If people want to make contributions before the reading, Leora has assembled the following information. Seemingly, ICRC, has been one of the few to get through with aid.

Contact and address information in case people want to send donations in to the Gaza iniative even if they can't make it to the reading -- ICRC is among the few places that can get relief aid into Gaza.

Website is here:  (people can donate on-line very easily, too)
