Haji airfare 2 see his dying mother


I work for at Microsoft Research and I'm trying to raise funds so that Haji who was our mail delivery person can fly back to Tanzania to see his critically ill mother one last time.  I shot this video originally to raise some funds for Haji to go to pay for college classes  but the immediate need is to raise $1,200 for the cheapest ticket (2 layovers at 15 and 17 hrs) for him to fly home to see his mother.  Haji makes just over minimum wage and does not have this kind of money in savings and his wife works graveyard shift just to make ends meet.  Haji is a kind and generous person and you can see that from the video.  I will start by contributing $200 but any amount you care to contribute would be helpful.  His mother is very sick so I am hoping to raise the airfare by Saturday July 9th.  Those of you who have met Haji know that he is a kind soul who works hard to support his wife and little daughter in the US. He deserves this opportunity and would be deeply grateful to see his mother one last time.
