Hello everyone,

We are coming to a close for the fundraising and the funds will be withdrawn under my name. I will be paying the shipper with this money by check.

Thank You once again for your support!

Hello everyone!

Just recently we had gotten an updated quote for shipping and noticed that our goal needed to change a little bit, so we are still accepting donations!

As soon as we reach our goal, the clothing donations will be in Erbil, Iraq in a couple of days after reaching the goal, so that is also some great news!

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed as it is very encouraging to see the participation from the community!

Every little bit counts, and if you can, spread the word!

Here is the quote attached, we are aiming for our current goal as GoFundMe takes a certain percentage out of the total.

Air Freight @ $4.15/kg…………………….$3390.00
Fuel @$1.30/kg…………………………………$1062.00
Security and Screening@ $0.40/kg…….$327.00
Pick up from Portland ………………………..$475.00
Airport Transfer …………………………………$195.00
Documentation…………………………………..$125.00
Total…………………………………………………….$5574.00

We have crossed the half way mark! This is getting really exciting.

I have gotten some good ideas about how to get funds even faster and I love it! Keep throwing some more ideas around so we can improve our efficiency to raise funds and send the massive donations out!

A huge thank you to the contributors to this project.
