Dear Bhaktas:

I am sorry to post this off topic on this group.  I have been personally
personally requested by the Head Priest of HIndu Temple, St.louis about his.
Its for a good cause.  I know the case is very genuine as I know this
problem before he knew it. I spoke to him personally and he is in real need.
You dont need to worry about donating 100$, Even 5$ makes a lot of
difference for that family.  Afterall we have helped and donated to lot of
unknown faces,  Lets donate to a known face at this time.  You can give the
cheques to me at SampathKumar, c/0 Srikanth Valuthur, 2315 A Kratky Road,
Saint louis, MO, 63114  or drop at the boxes in the temple or give it to
sampathKumar directly.

Moderators:  Please forgive me for posting this here,  But it is a really
really urgent need.

Shri Sampathkumar's son-in-law(who is also a priest in Bangalaore)  has been
inflicted with the dreadful 
disease of blood cancer (A.M.L. - Acute Myeloid Leukemia) and has 
been undergoing various treatments in India for the last ten months. 
The next course of treatment to save his life is the bone marrow 
transplant procedure. A matching donor was found and the 
transplantation was conducted  on September 19th in Vellore 
hospital in India. The estimated expenses for bone marrow 
transplantation and the post treatment recovery are $25,000.  Sri 
Sampathkumar's family and his son-in-law's family have used up all 
their earnings and savings to pay for the expenses incurred thus far 
and are in dire financial need and distress to pay for further 

On behalf of Sri Sampathkumar, I request all the devotees to 
contribute generously to this worthwhile and humanitarian cause. 
Please send your contributions payable to Sri Sampathkumar 
Bhattacharya, The Hindu Temple of St. Louis, 725 Weidman Road, 
Ballwin, MO-63011. Or deposit your checks in the separate "Sri 
Sampathkumar Donations Box" at the temple. Your help is highly
