THERE ARE TIMES when we have to share our blessings without counting. No doubt many of us around the world have been watching with growing horror as the death count from the devastating earthquake and tsunami waves in Asia climbs toward 20,000.
Even if it feels inadequate in the light of such devastation here are a few (mostly U.S. based) organizations through which you can help:
- Oxfam America
- Care USA
- American Red Cross
- Catholic Relief Services
- Direct Relief International
- Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres
- International Medical Corps
- International Orthodox Christian Charities
- Mercy Corps
- Operation USA
Robert Scoble is keeping a linklist of news and related blog postings from around the world, and despite a lack of blog activity due to the Christmas holiday, many bloggers are responding now with post entries covering helpful resources, information, photos, assistance, and heartfelt thoughts.
If you’ve got any additional helpful resources (especially of assistance would be international agencies) please feel free to leave a comment or trackback here.
