Helping Zeyad

One of Iraq’s best bloggers, Zeyad of Healing Iraq, has been accepted at City University of New York’s new Graduate School of Journalism, but can’t get a student visa until he has $45,000 to show he can support himself.

Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine is asking bloggers to help.

On Zeyad’s site, click on the CONTRIBUTE button and give a donation directly to him via PayPal or credit card.

Or you can give a tax-deductible contribution to CUNY earmarked for Zeyad’s scholarship. Send your check made out to Cuny Graduate School of Journalism to:

Dean Steve Shepard
CUNY Graduate School of Journalism
535 E. 80th St.
New York, NY 10021

Make sure to note that this is for the “Zeyad Scholarship.”

Trained as a dentist, Zeyad thinks he can make more of a difference in Iraq as a journalist.
