interesting figures, but i would like to see them from a source which is a bit more politically neutral
the table is in desparate need of being updated
little johnny howard has pledged AUS$1billion and he is showing in the media that he has a heart, onya johnny!!!

Interesting to see Norway on top of that list..

It's even possible that the government will give more.
Many "high ranking" Norwegians wants us to give around 6-10 Billion NOK (around 6 NOK = 1 USD)...
Over 400,000,000 NOK have been donated to aid organizations so far, and there will be a big TV charity tonight so that number should go up even more...

But I'm getting a bit "worried" that we may ge giving "too much" now..

yeah, sorry about the political bent of that website ( i happen to agree with it but i would've prefered something a little more impartial)

do you think this aid from Aus ( to indonesia ) will go some way to thawing relations between these two countries?

oh yes
and its a very good thing, you should always try to be on good terms with your neighbours, especially when they are a lot bigger than you. it has certain benefits as they can help us with getting into trade agreements with other asian countries
its definently looking good

Taiwan has donated US $50 mil from the government and the private donation is already over US $57 mil as well. With a population of 23 mi, I thought the list should include Taiwan... Owell I guess I know why we are not on the list

I dont get the numbers they claim they used, as they dont match even slightly?

i don't think it's due to "that".
it's a wee bit outdated. has mainland china donated yet?

Donations of money is great, how many nations are there with helos, ships and "feet on the street" in force helping these people? Money means nothing without getting the aid to the people, just ask the people of Africa.
