Imran Khan Foundation USA Funds First of Its Kind Seed Distribution Program in Pakistan

IKF USA reimburses IKF Pakistan $5.5 million for its flagship program which reached over a million people in 1000 villages that were worst hit by the mega floods. Under the program 2,41,000 bags of quality wheat seed of “Sehar Variety” were distributed to 1,31,000 poor farmers in Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, Khyber Pakhtoon Kha, Gilgit/Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.

IKF’s Seed Distribution program after the floods achieved the distinction of being the first of its kind in Pakistan by a philanthropic and humanitarian foundation. The program has been satisfactorily audited by A.F. Ferguson & Co, a member firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

This successful program was possible due to the generous contributions of the donors in USA

and around the world for this great humanitarian cause.

IKF USA looks forward to the continued patronage of their donors and well wishers.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 6 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 29 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 91 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 15mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was August 22nd with 9 views. The most popular post that day was Donate.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were imrankhanfoundation.org, insaf.pk, pukaar.org, imrankhanfoundation.com, and facebook.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for imran khan foundation, imran khan flood relief, imrankhanfoundation.org, imran khan flood relief fund, and imrankhanfoundation.

Four Million Dollars and counting.

We had set a donation collection target for Sept 30th 2010 at $4 million.

On Sept 28th 2010, we were short of $4 million by approx $300,000, although we had over achieved all our previously set goals.

I am humbled and pleased to announce that once again, by the grace of GOD we have achieved our targets…in fact over shot it.

As of close of day Sept 30, 2010 the total funds collected by the Imran Khan Foundation US stood at an astonishing: $4,025,627.00

In the last two days , we collected approximately $55,000 through various small on line credit card donations and checks/wire transfer that were sent to IKF Bank Account.

HOWEVER, THERE WAS A DONATION MADE OF $250,000 FROM A SINGLE DONOR ON SEPT 30TH 2010 WHICH PROPELLED US PAST OUR TARGET.

We thank you all for spreading the word, organizing fundraisers, collecting donations, motivating people, donating your money, your time and your energies for this worthy cause.

Let’s keep the ball rolling.

Can we collect another million to this and hit $5 million by Oct 31st 2010?

Two Million Dollars and counting.

Imran Khan Foundation had targeted to collect $2 million before the end of Ramzan.

I am thrilled to announce that as of today Sept 9th 2010, the total collected so far by the Imran Khan Foundation in the US has crossed the $2.5 million mark…and then some.

Breakup is as follows:

On line through PAYPAL: $1,428,600.00
Checks, direct deposits, wire transfers (United Central Bank): $1,134,089.00
Total Collected (Sept 9th 2010): $2,562,689.00

(Two million, five hundred sixty two thousand, six hundred and eighty nine dollars)

As per my last report on Aug 31st 2010 we had just managed to cross a million.
This means that we collected over $1.4 million in the last 9 days.

We are all faced with a series of great opportunities, usually & brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
This is true for the land of the pure today more than it ever was.

Therefore, remember that persistence in spite of all obstacles & impossibilities distinguishes the strong from the frail.
We’ve got to keep pushing.
The task on hand is a tremendous one.

Next stop $4 million by the end of September 2010.

Million Dollars and counting.

It gives me great satisfaction to report the following updates:

The total collected so far by the Imran Khan Foundation in the US has
crossed the million dollar figure.

As I report this right now the total amount that has collected by IKF US as of Aug 31st 2010 stands as follows:

On line through Pay pal                                      $793,600.00
Checks, direct deposits, wire transfers        $346,577.20
Total Collected so far (Aug 31st 2010):    $1,140,177.20

In addition to the above we still have pledges to collect and many “checks in the mail” are on the way.

Remember,  our target for month of Ramzan is $2 million. We have 8 more days to go so let’s give it everything we’ve got.

Remember,  It’s never a problem,  it’s always a challenge!
