Annie's "Send a Dollar to Afghanistan Children" Page

On 10/11/01 President Bush during his first evening press conference since the war
began asked all the Children of the United States send in a $1 one dollar bill to
help the children of Afghanistan. He is also encouraging children to use this as an opportunity to raise money in other ways and send it to the fund. Church groups, school classes, church groups, boy scouts and girl scouts can also use this as a way to work together to raise money in addition to there own dollar. You can also send in a letter to the Afghan Children with your dollar.

Here is the full text of President Bush's news conference from 10/11/01
