not sure if this is appropriate, but if you are wondering where/how to donate to help those of that terrible tsunami, here is a link i found with a huge list.
moderators: this is not meant as a solicitation, just a public service for those interested in helping out a bit.

i just randomly chose one, i think it was Catholic Relief Services (im not even Catholic!) and gave a donation.
i returned an expensive Christmas jacket, and have deferred my acquisition of an E2 in order to donate.

it breaks my heart to see all that suffering.

take care, folks!
