Save the Children

Obviously, the Tsunami disaster is a HUGE tragedy, the number of lives lost sickening. Through all the footage, what kills me the most is seeing the children who were affected, making pleas for their parents to contact them if they are still alive. So many people died, so many children were killed.

Its not much, but Rick and I donated $5000 to Save the Children. Of course, these organizations need help and funding year round, not just in times of severe crisis.

It feels good to help, but it doesn't take away the lump in my throat.

GW,

It is really unbelievable. To gain perspective, a little more than 58,000 Americans were lost during the Vietnam war over 11 years. And in one day, this disaster has claimed over 150,000 victims. It is really difficult to comprehend. And you're right...seeing the children is very difficult to take.

The donation that you two have made says a lot about the kind of people you are...but I think a lot of us already knew that...

Hopefully all of us never get so jaded that we lose that lump in our throats, or the desire to help...it's what makes us human.

Nice one GW and Rick, I am sure that the money will help . Do not worry about the lump in your throat, at least you have helped.

I have donated a tenner - £10 (or $20) to the disaster fund (www.dec.org.uk) which I know is not nearly as much as you but it is better than being a scrooge in a time of need.
