Cash Donations in Mumbai

Can we collect cash from people in Mumbai and send it to the PM's relief fund? A lot of people have asked if they can contribute. These people cannot go to the disaster area but have the heart to open their wallets.

Can someone suggest a way in which old clothes, dry food etc that maybe collected be sent to Tamil Nadu / Nicobar Islands?

You can reach me anytime on 09819298806

Most relief agencies at this point in time are insisting on CASH DONATIONS ONLY because transporation/logistics have not been ironed out yet to ship clothes, food etc. But I am sure the situation will change in a few weeks.

Best wishes,

my 2 paisa.... Cash donation is usually not a good idea. Since it may cause accounting and accountability issues. you could always collect cheques and send them to PM's relief fund or any other organization like Asha, AID...

I also agree...Cash would be great but unfortunately and realisticly it could cause a added temtation to some poor soul who might be a lttle more controled by greed. Never rule it outin this day and age...wish i was wrong but its very possible
