What you can do to help in the tragedy in Southern Asia

Within the first day it was said that more people died in the earthquake and tsunami in Southern Asia than in New York on 9/11/01.  Everyday the death toll rises – 60000 was just reported on the news.  You can help in many ways but you will want to make sure that you donate to a relief agency that has been around the block and will use your money and not waste it.  Look for an established company.  Doing a cut and paste from a piece of company mail here is the start of a good list.

Below is a partial list of organizations responding to this crisis gathered by InterAction, an umbrella organization of relief and development agencies.   Updates on these agencies and their work can be found at their individual websites or by going to  www.interaction.org.
