At least 200,000 people have lost their lives in East Africa and South Asia in the aftermath of the earthquake and resulting tsunamis on December 26. Thousands of people in Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and Indonesia are still missing; many others have lost their homes and livelihoods. Sri Lanka and Indonesia suffered the highest number of deaths, but India, East Africa, Seychelles, Maldives, and Thailand were all affected by the tsunami waves, which reached as high as 20 feet. Aid workers and volunteers are focused on stopping the spread of disease and delivering food and drinking water to survivors.

We would like to encourage all our visitors to make a donation to help the relief efforts in the affected countries.

Please donate as much as you can, as quickly as you can. If large amounts of aid do not reach the affected areas soon the number of fatalities could become even more appalling through the spread of disease. The UN estimates that billions of dollars will be needed and it would seem that our governments can so far only bring themselves to donate small numbers of millions.

Many charities and aid organizations are now operating a donation scheme, and donations can be made easily, quickly and securely over the web.

I donated some money, $20. But every bit helps. The thing that is making me mad is that the US gave $325 million and they had the nerve to say we need to do more, rather then just thanking us. Besides that, im sorry it happened, and hope the sitituation gets better soon.

I gave 20, and wish I could give more, but then my rent check would bounce, and that would NOT be good.

ok, I gave $50 more on top of the $20, but that's seriously all I got. I really need a job.

i am really impressed with the users here. I am very pleased to see that many of you have taken the time and effort to help others in need. While I am a simple college student, with very meager funds, I can offer nothing but sympathy for the families overseas. However, it is encouraging to see, and it is evident here as it is worldwide, that humanity truly does care for one other, and that when a disaster such as this occurs, we can put our religious, secular, regional, economical, and strategic differences behind us to focus on a common goal. Kudos to all who donated here, and elsewhere. Keep up the good fight.

Yeah...its kind of funny:

America - Population = Approx. 296 000 000
Amount Donated to Tsunami Relief as of Jan. 8th - $425 Million

Canada (where I live) - Population = Approx. 32 000 000
Amount Donated to Tsunami Relief as of Jan. 8th - $425 Million

Now c'mon....thats kinda sad....practically 9.5 times the population...and the same donation. Jeeze...

We have this red cross boxes in school where we can put money, and under 1lunch brake the first day the box was "out" it got full, everywhere in vasa(Finland, Swedens neighbour country) ppl can donate and, even if it is just 1$ or 1€ it still helps alot...

3euros gives 20litre of fresh water(thx to freshwater tablets) or a blanket
35cents gives a antibiotic cure

Sorry I dunno what it is in dollars, but it's kinda the same amount..

So even the smallest donation helps alot more, when youre thinking of buying candy or something you know u dun need, put the money in your pocket and put it in a donation box.

bah. the way I see it is this: the earth is a form of living thing, and no, this is not going where you might think, and like any other living thing, it has a form of immune system. well, it found a place with cancerous growth, and sought to remedy the fact. think about it, this happened in the area with THE highest population density in the whole frigging world, thousands of the are eliminated, this can only make their day to day life more pleasent, after the clean up. they were overcrowded, they had too many people for jobs, and now, with a sudden and serious drop in population, there will be more jobs, cleaning up the streets, replacing jobs of the deceased, taking medically trained people to help the injured. the sheer number of people out of the way now will make those who survived feel more comfortable than ever before.
