Norah reblogged this on My Elegantly Cluttered Chamber and commented:

Alright so my Facebook contacts ignore all my sensible posts, and I only have three followers on Twitter, which made me decide to reblog this post. I have 139 followers on my blog, and assume maybe an eighth... no a sixteenth... actually read my posts. That's more than Facebook and Twitter combined. So I hope this post will reach out to people willing to help my friend Ken and his former student Ria by donating what them British peeps call a few "quids" and... aaand... here comes the good stuff: having your name mentioned in the book! How cool isn't that? Furthermore, you'd be helping a young girl getting the education she needs in order to return to Bangladesh and work for the struggling women who are the backbone of society. So hurry before it's too late and the book is published!
