Tsunami Relief Donation Center in Manhattan

--From a Blog Reader--

In affiliation with the American Sri Lanka Buddhist Association, a tsunami relief donation center has been opened at 528 Canal Street in Manhattan at the corner of the West Side Highway. The center is open from 7:30am to 11pm, seven days a week.

The center is asking Manhattan residents and businesses to donate items that are badly needed by the tsunami victims. (We do not accept money) Since all labor for both collection and distribution is voluntary, and shipping containers and shipment to Sri Lanka have already been donated, one hundred percent of all donated items get into the hands of the people that need them.

I had a link come to me in chat http://tsunami-relief.8m.com and I donated what I could there (a little more than I could really afford), I wish I could do more.

AID endorses RSS (the only political group working at grass-roots)At this point I would like to add that enormity of the problem is so much that one must try and work with every since group that is doing work on the field-whether NGOs, Govt, local unions and organizations, or other youth and women's organizations and even groups that might have some political affiliations. One can not afford to be fussy about working with different groups (as long as they are sincere and work efficiently). What matters now is reaching relief and rehabilitation to all those who need it.


AID - thats what I call true spirit
