A donation link for any Canadians or residents of Canada:

[redcross.ca...]

Note that the Canadian government is matching all donations to this site until January 11th - a great way of maximising your donation. Your donation will be tax-deductible too, so that means you can give even more.

Jon_king check your sticky.

I saw an article in the Daily Telegraph today about a guy who'd just been arrested for sending fake emails telling relatives that their loved ones werecertainly dead. Twisted.

The shareasale affiliate network put up a notice today allowing affiliates to donate direct from their commission balance (to be split between three major organizations helping in the relief efforts) and are matching the donations being made by affiliates. Thought it was pretty nice of them.

It is a shame it takes a disaster of this magnatude to get the whole world to come together. Kinda renews my faith in the human species.

Glad to see some relief is getting to the victims now.

There is a link to a list on Googles home page. I'm not sure it would be proper to suggest a specific.

Phishing scams and worms plague tsunami aid effort

For all the good that people can do, coming together after a disaster of this magnitude, there ARE still scum out there scamming.... lower than whalecrap on the bottom of the ocean.

I think, in the States at least, that one is fairly safe donating directly to the Red Cross. I'm not sure that helps outside the US....

The one thing locally that made me gag a few days ago was the "good ol' boy" politico who smiled insincerely into the camera and pointed out again that his thousands of dollars in donations were tax-deductible, and "all of us" should follow suit. Which is fine, except that I heard him tell a friend of ours at a town meeting tbe other day that the only reason he "bothered" was because he needed some more tax relief.... But at least he sent the money - doesn't matter how he really feels....

Some people are no damn good. To the rest of you, bless you all for the good you do!

First of all to those who survived this tragedy - so good to know you're OK and thanks for sharing your stories. My heart goes out to you and to all those who have lost friends or family.

Donations by Phone: Maybe I'm stating the obvious here, but I've seen no mention of picking up the telephone and calling your donation in. I called Save the Children [savethechildren.org...]
I got through immediately (several days ago)and it took about 5 minutes and no worries about scams or viruses. And cheers to all those who are donating.
