The following are excerpts from a Saudi TV fundraiser for the victims of the tsunami:
Host: The donations we have here include white and yellow gold as well as other donations. Brother Ibrahim Sliman Al-Shehnan has donated a 1988 Chevrolet Suburban. Also, a well-wisher has donated a 1981 Caprice, and, on behalf of his wife, he donates six shares of a certain company. He asks the sheiks at the studio and the viewers to pray for his child who has a speech impediment. Another brother, a well-wisher who asked to remain anonymous, donated a Pontiac Lumina (sic.) and a check for 10,000 riyals.
