In television and radio public service announcements released by the Ad Council today, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton encourages donations to the Pakistan Relief Fund (the Fund). Since the flooding in Pakistan began just over one month ago, more than 20 million people throughout the country have been affected. Created by the U.S. Government through the Department of State, the Fund serves as a platform to raise the profile of fundraising efforts and to bring together people from around the world to help make donations.

The new PSAs, which include television and radio spots as well as Web banners, direct audiences from around the world to visit http://www.state.gov where they can donate to the Fund through a secure online donation page. Americans can also donate by text messaging the word “FLOOD” to 27722, which will charge $10 to their cell phone bill. Standard text messaging and data rates apply.

In her message Secretary Clinton says, “now is a time for our shared humanity to move us to help. That is why the United States government through the Department of State has established the Pakistan Relief Fund for all Americans to join in this tremendous relief, recovery and reconstruction effort.”

Secretary Clinton has been urging people to donate whatever they can-to contribute to the Pakistan disaster relief, text “FLOOD” to 27722 to contribute $10

    Hey Stacy- long time no see! This is OT, sorry but I figured you would know. Senator Mitchell gave a briefing on the Israeli-Palestinian direct negotiations- do you have a transcript because I can’t find one anywhere- not at State or the WH

      Hey Paul, nice to see you!

      Actually, I do have a copy of the transcript but it’s embargoed until 9pm tonight – check your email and I’ll send it but it can’t be posted anywhere publicly until after 9pm.
