Tsunami help

tsunamihelp.blogspot.com has rapidly become the central clearinghouse for information about aid efforts after the disaster. Also, closer to home, D. Sivakumar of IBM Almaden is involved with redroots.org:

Red Roots is a network of compassionate individuals who care about the less fortunate. Our immediate goal is to get a million donations to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund for the Asian Tsunami crisis (through Amazon): Go to Amazon and donate $5 to the American Red Cross. Call, email, or visit 2-4 individuals you know and get them to do likewise (donate $5, sign up more people). The emphasis here is on the million, less on the $5 (or Amazon or Red Cross). If each of us donates and finds two new participants, we can very quickly reach the million mark. If this experiment succeeds, we hope to build a much larger network of compassion whose potential we can only imagine.
