Hi,

Quote:
My suggestion for this months donation is that it should go to an organization that helps out with the tragedy here
Redleg .

There is a problem in that ..............it will take time .............Rebuilding efforts will start after it is known that everyone that needs to be saved is actually saved....

Second Who will you Give the Money to.........This is Spread Across 11 Countries..........I don't know of any centralised Organisation that is handling the Rebuilding Process in all those 11 Countries.............My suggestion would be to Give it to Sri-lankan Relif work they have suffered too Much ...........years of war now taken most of the blunt of this Tsunamis

I gave My Very Small Contribution Directly to that Prime Minister's Relif Fund that would be Jointly Funding the Indian and Sri-lankan Relif work .

Red Cross of Similar organisation could be one Idea though ..

[EDIT]

Found this BBC Article it lists Some Websites

The International Red Cross is focusing on Sri Lanka now, so my suggestion is that they should receive this months MilCharity donation..

http://www.icrc.org/web/eng/siteeng0...C?OpenDocument

We're up to $110 this month, a forum member have contributed with $10 extra to the $100 I will give..

I'm afraid that I can make the donation until the 5th January, since I have to use my own credit card for it...

Hi,

Yes, i Agree Sri lanka is a War Torn Region ....................it will never be able to Get out of this If Outside Help is not Given.

IT woud be a Good Contender for the Donation .


Red Cross Around the world is Accepting Donations ................you can submit your Contributions in Cash or Kind at the Nearest Red Cross Office.

You can Also Donate Online But Beware of Frauds................only Give Donations to Reputed Organisations .............make sure your Money gets to who needs the Most.

here is a List Set up by Google of all the organisation and Tsunami Relief page You can Also Visit it.

For Indian Citizen Living Abroad:
India has Refused Aid Form Foreign Countries........But not form International Aid Agencies...........So if your Are an Indian Send you Contribution Directly to the Prime Ministers Relif Fund ............and if you live in India,;..... People are Advised to Submit themselves rather than Online .

Peace

I think we would all agree that it should go to aid Tsunami Victims.

I'm increasing my own contribution, so the total will be $150 now..
I've also donated to national aid organizations, and I hope that as many as possible of you do the same...

No amount is too small, you can even donate clothes, gear etc. to your local aid station...

You can find some links to different national and iternational aid organizations here:

Hi,

Yes I tred to Spare some .............and Donated Blood .................Blood supplies are Runnng Short ................So i got all my Fiends and Encouraged them to Spare some (Blood)

Psst : A bit Frightened About the Blood test result it might be something Like 60% Alcohol

It Dosen't matter if it's a huge Sum or Small it will all go down in Helping Someone in a big way ...............i am surprised by the Internationla Privare Donations ...............the figures are just Staggring.............Italian's and Britons alone Added 45 Million $ is such a Small time and it's Increasing .............same is the reaction everywhere...........God Bless Us all


BTW.: AlexKall Did someone ever told you that you have a very Sexy Signature :P

Peace

Well this happened at a very bad time, I had to bottom out my savings and checking accounts so I could pay to keep my car running and get presents, I will have to make some other payments for my car but I intend to donate at least $40 to the International Red Cross. Anybody know if they are doing any sort of humanitarian missions to these countries? Like the IRC flying in volunteers from other countries to help with the clean up? But yes, the donation should definetly go towards a Tsunami Relief Fund of some sort. And just remember, clothes and food are nice but what these organizations really need is cash, so this is a time when you don't need to feel guilty about taking the lazy way out and donating money.

the International Red Cross/Red Crescent are doing some great work in the disaster areas, and especially in Sri Lanka now.

Norwegian Red Cross have sent several small/medium sized medical facilities and personnel down already, and more is on it's way.
So it's a very good organization to send donations to..
