Hello: I greatly appreciate your hard work in getting this web site together especially for the biggest catastrophe in the history of the Earth. Would it be possible for people to make CREDIT CARD contributions? I want to make sure funds reach the victims ASAP instead of waiting for regular post/mail to reach them. Please advise and incorporate if possible.

Thanks,
Shiv Akumala

Hi Shiv,

There is no provision on the blogger to make a credit card contribution. But NGOs like Asha, AID etc have such a provision.

For Asha - https://www.ashanet.org/donate/tsunami-relief-donation.php

For AID - http://survivors.aidindia.org

Thanks
Vishal

Shiv,
As Vishal said, you cant make contributions to the bloggers but you can make contributions by Credit Card to the Prime Minister's relief Fund.
On tsunamihelp.blogspot.com you will find other NGO's which accept payment by credit card.

We are happy that you want to help!

I read that no official aid is reaching some badly hit main-land areas in Tamil Nadu for several reasons. Does anyone know any voluntary organizations have yet reached the affected areas in that region? I would like to contribute to those.

You can find a decent list of places in the US to send relief to here, you can check your charity using Charity Navigator and you can visit the Flickr site with other suggested places to donate on topic Relief Donations for Indonesia and Websites for Donations. Hope this helps.

Hi all,

The work is really appreciated beyond doubt. Can you change the template somehow such that the Donation links/posts are always on the top??? I think adding the links/posts 1 line after this lines should help -
It will be useful as your site must be really popular now and most of the people visiting your site must be coming to look for donation options. Why not give them what they want on the top of the page??

The blog has wealth of information and I am very grateful! However, I would like information on what organizations actually need people to come to help on the ground. I have unlimited time on my hands and would fly immediately if I knew where to go. I have considered just going anyway and figuring it out when I get there although I'm not sure that would be wise. Could you post something specific to that? Thanks.

You're doing a GREAT JOB with this site by keeping everyone informed what's happening on the ground. WELL DONE! As a comment, I think the layout or template should be reorganised by developing a section in the site for donations, what do to and where to go, etc. Perhaps it would also help if a subsection is developed for each country, which is particularly important for those looking for missing loved ones in each country affected by the disaster.

Keep with the good work!

I wish that someone could find a way to consolidate all the info and the web-sites that are listing/posting requests to find missing people. There are so many listings to look through and the name doesn't always appear first. I sense that someone w/ organizational abilities and computer knowledge could do what even the State Dept. seems unable to do!

A 2 yr old boy is missing his parents and is in a hospital in Thailand. I have avoided posting his pic under the Missing Persons pic link on your blog, cos they are trying to locate this kid's family and it would be misleading. The kid is safe but is missing his parents. If you would like to see the pic/contact info, either
1. send me an email (vjmario@yahoo.com)
2. help me post the pic/contact info online where it could be seen by many ppl. , i'll greatly appreciate it - Mario, USA
