Someone mentioned linking this so people that normally can't see the ads will. So here it is. Maybe someone can stick it at the top.

Stuck.

I donated to Red Cross. They were advertising on amazon.com, and I clicked and added an amount to my amazon order. They reassured customers that 100% of the donations go to Red Cross, and that it was for the disaster relief.

I just wish I could do more.

For those of you asking for pictures of what happened to the landscape.

They have before and after images from satellite. Please donate. These people literally have nothing, in some cases, the whole infrastructure's been completely wiped off the land.

i was proud to learn that our company will be donating an initial $100,000 to the relief effort, and setting up local fundraising efforts.

I wonder if we can set up a bikeforums charity, if everyone just donated ONE dollar, we'd have well over 10 grand. It's probably the same as donating individually to the charities but if we band together, it'll at least get the name out and the fact that yes, we obsessive compulsive bikers who's carbon shims cost more than a week's salary in sri lanka are here to help too.

I would donate. We'd have to mass email everyone, since not everyone gets online.

There was an email at work today that they will match donations. I think that is how I will throw my drop in the bucket.

Our company has said they will be donating $100,000 to the American Red Cross and will also be matching personal donations. I suppose I should get off my butt and get a donating.

i took the polar bear plunge for the first time on new years day in support of the tsunami relief fund.
it was the 20th year, monies always donated to the world vision .ca and red cross for orphanages but this year world relief changed the donation... over 400 ppl plunged in 1c water and raised over 51,000.00 the canadian government is matching all private donations.. so that is over 100,000 .00 for a 4 minute dip in icy water! well worth it.

i was in the first wave.. wearing cottan jammies/camisole and my eeyore slippers got so water logged it was like dragging 20 lbs weights across ice and stones... lol ended up taking them off to go deeper..
was a ball.... next year, tina turner sparkling sequins and ballroom slippers
