South Asia Disaster

Please donate something to these poor bastards if you can. Few if any Americans know what kind of suffering there is in that region; they need help badly. Here is a list of charities helping in the relief effort. You can use one off the list or find one you like on your own, but we can't just do nothing.
Thanks.

Thanks for the post. Even though I wasn't born in Sri Lanka, my parents are Sri Lankan and I hold the country close to me.
I can tell you that its a tough time there right now and people are suffering. I appreciate your post with the list of charities and I am sure that other do as well.
Even if you can't contribute, just the realization of what is going on there is scary.
Thanks again!
