Did you make a donation?
For those of you who are looking to donate to aid the multitude of Tsunami Survivors, but are unsure of what agency or organization to contact, may I recommend:
This organization is already “in the air” with medical supplies and personell, sanitary and hygiene items. They are also focusing on water purification equipment for the survivors. They are sending aid specifically to Sri Lanka and India. Their focus is on items other than food and clothing, as many of the other aid agencies already focus on these staples. I spoke with them by phone this morning (along with several others) and have found them to be professional, organized, and I was pleased to find an organization that was already “in action”.
Many of the aid agencies are still preparing their supplies, while this one is already flying in these supplies.
To donate, you may use your credit card (secure site). To do this, on their home page, to the left, you will see “SUPPORT US”. Once you click this, you will see a page with a link “DONATE NOW”. When making your donation, at the end of the page, in the notes section, be sure to write: “DONATION FOR TSUNAMI SURVIVORS”, so that it will be allocated properly.
Your donation is most likely tax deductible. Check with your tax advisor for more information.
If you prefer another organization, you can visit MSNBC.com where there is a long list of the agencies who will be/are assisting in the aid operations needed so badly right now. Also, Amazon.com has established a fund to gather much needed financial assistance right now. You can donate there quite easily.
