Need: Send Supplies to Burma in a Journalist's Suitcase!
If anyone else living here in the Bay Area is looking for a way to support the people of Burma, let me know. A visiting environmental journalist here at the Berkeley J-school, Myint Zaw, is collecting supplies to take with him when he returns home to Burma next weekend.
He is asking people to leave supplies with Carolyn Wakeman, another j-school professor, in the North Gate Hall basement, room B34.
Myint is collecting the following (in bulk, if possible):
--water purification tablets
--folding water containers (for storage of clean water)
--any kind of nutritious crackers
--additional vitamin supplies
The deadline for this collection is May 17, as he will be flying back the next day.

J-School, stories and travels.
