      3. How We Can Help

      We have all heard about the tragedy in Asia as a
      result of the earthquake and tsunami. Over 120,000
      have died and that number is continuing to rise.

      People all over the world are responding in record
      numbers. Much more money is needed, of course. It
      is part of the tragedy that some unscrupulous people
      are trying to pass themselves off as real charities
      but are only collecting money for themselves. It is
      a good idea to only contribute to organizations you
      know and trust. Do some research before you give!

      Here is a list of groups that are responding to the
      crisis in Asia. It is not meant to be an exhaustive
      list, but one we pulled together from various sources
      on the Internet. You may have other relief agencies
      to which you have already contributed, which is
      wonderful! But if you have not yet given, think of
      the immense human toll, reflect on all that you have,
      and consider making a contribution to aid those who
      are less fortunate than you are.
