I just donated 100$ (American) to the Red Cross/Red Crescent. I specifically stated that I wanted it to go to the Asian tsunami/earthquake situation.

all these kind words and donations are comforting in a time like this, i have donated all i can, a little over 600 dollars and i am for sure going to be donating more but for know i am using the last of my savings to help get a few friends that survived back home in the us. i lost 8 friends and 6 people that were piratically family in this huge disaster. I have a very close friend who moved from Thailand in 88 and has been living with me since and he was there with most of my friends on Christmas vacation, i stayed here for family reasons. and now i wont be able to see most of them again, i have been told that many of them was found and placed in a mass grave and their belonging are gonna be brought back here with the remaining survivors when they are able to get home. my condolences go out to everyone else who has had someone lost in this tragedy. and thanks to everyone who has made a choice to help out in this time of need. many people including myself owe everything to you people, if it was not for you all and your kind words and donations it would be a much harder experience to make it through.

yes the tsunami watch centre in honolulu hawaii claim that they had known that a tsunami would hit but didn't know which appropriate people to tell...it's not really so much the blame on america but i suppose a bunch of miscommunication? not really sure i'm sort of feeling a bit iffy about how come they didn't contact ANYONE about this..

I'm sure it will get much higher, as they havent even began to really even assess the damage in Indonesia, it's comprised of thousands of islands, all of which surely had severe damage. Millions of people live in these low-lying coastal areas...

Please don't compare to 9-11, that was a horrible man made tragidy that has no comparison to a natural disaster besides the fact that people died in them both.

Let's not blame people, institutions, nations.. Let's not compare it to other events that came to pass.

Possibly 100.000 people.. Unreal...
I got a huge pot of vitamin pills. It holds 250 pills. If every pill was someone who died or will die, those are 400 pots of 250 pills..
Unreal numbers...

It's so incredible how people donate so generously..
We truely are a community that cares, but now we too are hit.

I payed up my 50 Euro = $68.. I might donate again. This is so terrible and so many people threat this as (excusez) "just another disaster".

I just pressured my two Christian friends into donating by blackmailing them with the bible :evil:
I will make an Fwd: email tomorrow and spread it around. Please incite people around you to give generously.
Donating is not a lottery: if you donate you always win because you do a good thing and if you don't believe in karma you may believe in a balance of some sort.

Donating felt and feels far better then those fireworks ever could.
I will never come to regret that donation because I had saved up the money and could spare it. I just hope people co?rdinating the Humanitarian Mission will not forget Somalia and Kenya who were also hurt bad. People.. a disaster from southeast Asia to east Africa, from Thailand to Kenya, a disaster area about 5.000 miles wide... Think of all those tiny fisher villages that are hardly mapped at all.. We might startle beyond our cringing at the true death toll..
It's hot out there. The germs are multiplying for days now. Fishermen have not been bringing in the food and people are homeless for days..
Like I said, this disaster is in the same order of magnitude as a small-scale nuclear exchange..

there are already reports of diarhea and chicken pox in sri lanka :frown:

you know what I'm hoping for? Bill Gates. I know it sounds stupid, but his foundation has been doing a lot of work in SE Asia, specifically with medical relief. He could drop a couple billion on this, not feel it in his wallet, and still make a massive difference. I promise to take back all the nasty things I've said about him if he does come through with loot.

unfortunately, doesn't seem like bill gates will be donating so much money. it's reported that he'll just be donating 3 million dollars.

that's pathetic... pfizer gave ten times that much... and according to that article microsoft does apparently have offices in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India.

maybe his wife will let him give more later. still....  :mad2:
