A little over five years ago a whole pile of people, inspired by Julie Lerman
, got together to raise money for the tsunami relief and recovery in Aceh. (Here are my blog entries from that time
.) We raised over $10,000 and perhaps some of you were wondering if we made a difference. Well Stephen Forte, who was a big part of that effort, now lives nearby and he visited them. His update
is a lovely way to see what happened as a result of our efforts. It's nice to see that the organization we chose to support is still there and still doing good work. I wish all my donations came with a five year followup like that.
