Disaster Relief


The major conduit for disaster relief should be the American Red Cross:

One idea that we had was to sponser a classroom in the local school. The business will match anything that the children raise. Its not much, but it also energizes the kids.

A fellow blogger asked me to post sites that allow you to search for (and add) the names of survivors. Neither of the links he provided worked, but I did find this one:

I've only just found out extra gunk was added to the links I pasted which is why they didn't work.

These worked as of 5 minutes ago:

I'd suggest the bergdalen one first because it's mirrored. Then try the other

Hope this helps somebody
