The foundation of this blog was cemented by the Assassination of Hrant Dink on 19.01.07. I was listening to Setrak Setrakian’s rendition of Arno Babajanian’s composition, Elegy. So
moved by Hrant’s shortened life by the virtue of speaking his mind that I wrote the poem, ‘Without You’ with Hrant's family in mind. The subject matter of the recognition of the ‘Genocide of the Armenians in 1915,’ is very much at the heart and the minds of Armenian's Internationally.
I want to say: 'Thank you,'

If you feel it would be appropriate, please include a link to my Blog from your Site. I would like my Blog to be as eclectic as possible and include material from as many and different sources so long as it is relevant to my subject matter.
This well-established Blog is worth visiting on a regular basis for a wealth of information of interest to Armenian nationals and to the Armenian Diaspora world-wide. Although it has a particular role in promoting international recognition of the Genocide, the Blog encompasses much more and includes many articles of general appeal to all those concerned with Armenian affairs. Much of the content is difficult or impossible to find elsewhere and the long list of links provided gives easy access to a plethora of material on social, political, religious, educational and cultural matters, and many news items from around the world.
Text ARMENIA to 50555
Donate $10 through your cell phone
Los Angeles, CA – Armenia Fund is proud to announce that beginning today, it began accepting donations through cell phone text messages on the entire territory of the United States on all mobile carriers. The procedure is simple and fun: text message the word ARMENIA to 50555, confirm with a YES and $10 will be charged to your cell phone bill benefiting Armenia Fund’s Telethon 2010, Water is Life!
“We took the 2009 text message pilot project of Hayastan All-Armenian Fund in Armenia and adapted it to the U.S. cell phone environment. Donating through text message is very easy and takes seconds. We text our friends and family more than a dozen times each day – an average person in the United States sends 534 text messages per month. I think each of us can afford text messaging ARMENIA to 50555 at least once to help provide clean drinking water to the people of Armenia. Don’t wait for the Telethon – text today – remMbR, H2O S lyf!”, said Sarkis Kotanjian, Executive Director of Armenia Fund, U.S. Western Region.
Raising funds for drinking water and irrigation projects in Artsakh, Armenia Fund’s International Thanksgiving Day Telethon 2010 will air live from Hollywood on November 25, 8:00AM-8:00PM PST coast-to-coast and around the world.
