Ravi Shanghavi is Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 12 – Save the Children of Cyclone Nargis

Burma, now Myanmar is almost a fabled land for me.  My family has many stories of their time there, my father especially has told of the beautiful country and its people.  A place I will surely visit.

It is his wish for week 12 that I donate to the children of Myanmar who were affected by Cyclone Nargis.   Cyclone Nargis killed some 150,000 people in Myanmar in early May 2008.  Displacing tens of thousands more.   The foundation providing aid to this region is Save the Children.

It is the graph below that drew my interest to Save the Children.

In fiscal year 2008, 92 percent of all expenditures went to program services. In fiscal year 2008, 92 percent of all expenditures went to program services. That percentage is an average for all of Save the Children's programs worldwide; the percentage spent on in any particular program may vary. Program Services 92%, Management & General: 4%, Fundraising: 4%.
