The people in Serbia still need your help to recover from the serious flooding. St  Sava Cathedral in New York is raising funds, and all those interested in participating can do so using checks, credit cards, and PayPal by clicking the “donate” button on the church’s website (click here to do so). Those using credit cards and PayPal should type in “Flood Aid” in the “special instructions” section of their accounts. This money goes directly to the SPC with no middleman taking any cuts.

The authorities are using the spoof to raise awareness of the increase in robberies of Russian post offices.
