more heartbreaking news from Indonesia

India issues Tsunami Alert; CNN story here.

Meanwhile, CNN is also reporting that Asia Tsunami Death Toll May Pass 100,000.

I tried to make a donation yesterday but was unsuccessful; this is probably a really good sign that many, many people are trying to help. I had better luck today, finally able to get a donation through to Doctors Without Borders, but it took some doing so for any of you having trouble trying to get through, don't give up!

Just received this detailed list from my Act for Change Newsletter:

Donate to Groups Responding to the Tsunami Disaster

Below is a list of just a few of the many groups providing critically needed humanitarian aid to tsunami victims. Please consider making a generous donation to one or more of these groups.

American Friends Service Committee (AFSC Crisis Fund)

Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres

U.S. Red Cross

International Red Cross

Mercy Corps

Please note that some of these sites are experiencing heavy traffic, so try back if you are having trouble getting through.
