The Intelligencer December 21, 1915 (page 5)

Belgian Relief Fund [1]

“Help to Make Her Dream Come True. She is one of some Three Million Belgians who, since they refused to sell their honor to Germany, have lived on the brink of starvation. A thriving industrial people, used to life’s comforts, they have been reduced to a state where they dream, not of luxuries or pleasures, but of having enough to eat! True to their character as the war has unmasked it, the Germans callously refuse to help the starving. The task of feeding them has been undertaken by Belgium’s Allies and Neutral Nations, through the Belgian Relief Fund. …  $2.50 Keeps a Belgian Family a Month.”
