Tsunami Relief Effort Info

AKA--places to go to find out how you can give money to help with relief efforts in South Asia, Thailand and Indonesia. As a fundraiser, I was impressed that Doctors Without Borders was honest enough on their 'donate' page to say they actually have raised enough money for their South Asia Tsunami relief efforts. And Google has posted a page full of links to relief organizations throughout the region.

One note: I would discourage folks from giving money to USAID groups, since their aid often comes with repressive and fucked up political and economic strings attached.

Blessings,
Rona

Here's a blog to help people keep informed about relief organizations and what they do with their money, and which orgs are working on the post-tsunami economic, social and political ramifications as well as immediate medical and technical assistance.
