Tsunami Relief Effort & Information...
    Ways to Donate

1. Donate Money:

We, like a lot of you did in the past week, made a donation to a charity to help with the disaster relief. What I found was how much easier it was to do it via PayPal! I have used PayPal extensively for EBay and other payments to folks I don't know, so it wasn't a stretch to use it to send donations. A lot of the charities don't have explicit buttons on their site for donating via Paypal...but PayPal does!

If you have a PayPal account...all you do is type in the amount, click send, and you are done. One other benefit and a most important one for me...no giving out of personal information.

There are LOTS of other places to go to if you want to help, here's a link to CNN's list of organizations.

If you can't choose one, the America Red cross and American Friends Service Committee are a good places to start.
