To TEAM Bloggers : Let' try and sort out this confusion

- This South-East Asia Tsunami site is a huge source of information for all those who want to know and do something or contribute their bit. The last 2 days updates are a bit conflicting for all - queries, e-mails from everywhere and calls in Pune, INDIA are swamping coordinators with provisions for clothes and blankets among other things.
There are reports which say - 'Clothes / blankets' urgently needed in Tamil Nadu; whereas others say state 'Don't send any more clothes - there's a glut'. We need some cohesion, please. Ofcourse, this work is huge and its a 'information tsunami' on the website! But we could just try to see if information is consistent. But TEAM bloggers - its a great effort from everyone and God Bless each one at the New Year.

- OK, if AID INDIA people and others from Chennai / Cuddalore etc.could help out with this information on material requirement / volunteer jobs. Huge nos. are available for help as per requests (they need to be directed). Call me at Pune 0-98220 04752 / E-mail : vmoorthy@rediffmail.com

We've set up a website that makes it even easier for people to generate funds for the tsunami relief effort. Please check out http://www.ReliefSearch.org.

Very simply, when users click on search results generated from ReliefSearch.org, the site earns revenues on a pay-per-click basis. All click revenues generated from these searches will help fund the victims of the Earthquake/Tsunami disaster. People can continue performing searches on the web as they normally would, only proceeds from their activities on ReliefSearch.org will help the cause. So, we're encouraging users to use the ReliefSearch.org search engine instead of Google or Yahoo!

Our goal is 1 million searches in the next 30 days. Anything you can do to help spread the word about ReliefSearch.org will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for your help!
