After the success of the 'Cool Campaign' by QLVG and ILQ-VG. Still many individuals and Companies are approaching us to do the 2nd round of 'Cool Campaign' because of the Hot weather. : http://www.qatarliving.com/node/1156535

Yesterday some of QLVG members were invited to attend the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) meeting in their office. The purpose of the meeting was to call all the Volunteers to join hands with QRCS to support their 'Heat wave Awareness Campaign'.

Hi Speed,

Are you planning to distribute on the 24th at the times above or is this just collection?

Susie, the collection will be done on those days, however the distribution will be done on the 24th. If we do not have enough to distribute by then we might have to postpone the distribution to 31st that is the saturday after that. This also depends on how many volunteers we can gather.

Speed will give more details.
