i don't have any other words to say. but read it. then go to world vision or any of the other sites he's listed (for your country if you like, most of these are international programs and will have websites & bases in your own country) and donate towards the aid needed in south east asia as a result of the earthquake & tsunami.

{thankyou to those who already have}

no-one should have to live like this.
no-one should have to see their everything being washed away like this.

we are truly the lucky ones... how can we sit back and not do anything to help ?

What more can we do other than donate money?
I donated £5 a few days ago & feel terrible about it. It seems like so little, so useless. & the more stories I read, the more I want to give, but I just can't afford to. :(

i know what you mean.

i just made another donation
and it still feels so... little.
but i think that every little bit really does help. 5pounds is 5 pounds, and it can go a long way. if everyone didn't give because they thought their donation was too little, then aid organisations wouldn't be able to raise nearly enough.

I understand what you mean. But go to the entry Jade linked to. Craig has told a story about a $500 loan that changed the lives of SEVEN families by the time he caught up with it. Don't ever think your five pounds doesn't make a difference.

And I can guarantee you that the people who recieve these donations think that your five pounds is as much of a blessing as the twenty dollars the next person donated, or the hundred rupees someone else gave.

i'll be donating money this week to UMCOR (it's the United Methodist Committee on Relief; they are a wonderful humanitarian effort and every dollar goes to aid because our churches pay the administration costs through our regular offerings) for the effort. you are so right. and every little bit helps.
