A Request

"Humanity is always stronger than any disaster if we all participate as part of the solution!" The Tsunami was far far more devastating than what people might thought at the beginning. The reported death and casualties are mounting by the hour. Some villages were totally wiped out with nothing left other than the surface of a temporary sea.” - Asmir A. Agoes

This is a part of the account a friend of mine from Indonesia just sent to me. The devastation is far beyond anything in the realm of imagination…. except it is very real.

I urge you to help in any way you can. If you can donate to the relief effort then I ask you to contact your local Red Cross or any other organization supporting the efforts in Asia. And if you can’t afford to give financially, then donating your time to help process the overwhelming number of calls coming into these organizations is equally appreciated. Help comes in many forms. The ripple effect is astronomical. You can make the difference in the lives of one or many, but bottom line is, you will make a difference. Isn’t that what you would hope for if something this horrific happened to you?
