version of HyeSanta -- "Hye Dzmer Pap"
-- will be a first for Armenia.
A reader on business in Thailand is sending $750.
A student in New York has sent $20. Friday morning a
local reader visited the newsroom to give 25,000 drams
(about $45 - more than the monthly income for many here).
A reader in Canada has pledged a donation and wants
to know if she can "fax a hug". Well, go ahead
project has succeeded in raising about $2,000 in its
first few days. (Not counting donations sent by post.)
Plenty more is needed, all is welcomed, and every cent
or dram will do good.
On Monday, the local community will get its chance
to join the effort, when we publish a print version.
We believe this is the first time an Armenian media
has solicited involvement
in this manner, and we are eager to see the result.
