I wanted to let you know that The International Foundation For
Victims of Terror Acts (moscowhelp.org) has initiated a national
fundraising campaign to help the victims of the horrific terror act
in Beslan, Russia. With over 300 dead and over 700 wounded, most of
them children, this tragedy is Russia's September 11th, and urgent
financial assistance is needed to help alleviate the suffering of
injured and orphaned children.
The Fund is the only international charity organization that is
currently committed specifically to helping children of the Beslan
tragedy. The Fund is run by a group of volunteers and incurs no
administrative or other expenses related to personal donations. All
money donated is delivered directly to victims' families.
In the first six days of the donation drive on www.moscowhelp.org,
the Fund has received over $600,000 in private online donations
alone. However, much more is needed to provide effective assistance
to an estimated 600 injured and orphaned children. In the words of
the Fund's President, Andrew Mogilyansky, "every parent in the
world has got to donate to this cause". The Fund also actively seeks
corporate donors who are expected to make their donations after the
long weekend is over.
Donors can make their contributions by check, credit card or wire
transfer. Instructions for making a donation, as well as many ways
to provide additional assistance, are posted on the Fund's web site
The Fund has a proven track record of helping terror act victims in
Russia. Originally established to provide assistance to the families
of hostages who perished in the Moscow Nord-Ost theater siege
terrorist act in 2002, the Fund has successfully completed that
project with all donated funds fully distributed to victims'
families. The Fund is a US 501(c)3 Public Charity. All donations
are fully tax-deductible for US tax purposes. The Foundation is
recognized by the Russian Embassy which features a link to
www.moscowhelp.org on its web site and is profiled on CNN, NY Times
and other major media.
