Update on collected help for Mexico.
Post date: Oct 1, 2017 9:38:52 AM
The total sales were an all time record breaking 712 CHF.
100 USD (97.23 CHF) were directed to GlobalGiving's campaign. This roughly accounts for the extra money that Webrepublicans donated on top of (or instead of) their Mexican food purchases.
The rest of the money (614.77 CHF) is scheduled for a wire transfer to close friends in Mexico. After researching and asking around, there's a general consensus that the best option for donations is to send them via a person of trust. Our friends are part of the brigades collecting essential goods to transport them to severely affected remote areas. They've committed themselves to provide tickets for the purchases and document their deliveries.
We'll post further updates here.
