I am not generally in the business of plugging for this or that fundraiser. I think these things are usually better left to be spread by personal connections.
However, the Free Burma Rangers are the exception. I have worked alongside them personally, so I can attest to their integrity as an organization and promise you that they are the most epic, innovative, and effective NGO of their kind.
The Free Burma Rangers not only provide humanitarian aid, but do so in an honorable and sustainable way. Their three requirements for members are what sets them apart:
2. Ability to read and write – due to the medical, documentation and other skills needed, literacy in at least one language is required.
3. Physical and moral courage- they have to have the physical strength and endurance to be able to walk to crisis areas, and the moral courage to be with people under attack and to stand with them if they cannot flee.”
