Not Your Usual Sort of Princess


To thank the folks here who worked on translating my old family postcards and letters (they're in German), I made a donation to Doctors Without Borders on behalf of the Linguaphiles community. You guys are pretty much awesome.

There are still some postcards and a letter at my flickr account that have not been translated. Heck, let's just make it a fund raiser. When all the rest are done, I've got another $100 to donate. I'm open to suggestions from the folks doing the work or I'll just hit Doctors Without Borders again.

The postcards are here, and the last letter is here. For the postcards that have been translated, I have added the translation into the comments on flickr so it should be easy to see what's done.

If you want to see the donation confirmation, it's here:
