What’s our Response? – Cyclone Nargis

In the days following the cylone, we’ve been chatting as a staff and with folks in our community about how to respond quickly and responsibly to the disaster. Through conversations with Covenant World Relief, T at World Aid, and some folks from the Seattle Burma Roundtable, getting aid in is not as easy as it seems.  The situation is all over the news, and there has been an outpouring of support from around the world.  But at the ground level, what’s a church to do?  Here’s what we’re working on:

  • Collecting Donations from Questers on Sunday
  • Holding a benefit show at Q Cafe May 17
  • Releasing funds from the Quest Global Presence Foundation to go directly to relief efforts

If you’re interested in helping with a benefit show, or donating to CWR and World Aid through the church, let us know…more to come as we seek to respond with both prayer and action.
