    I’d also recommend donating to Artists For Peace & Justice by clicking on the DONATE NOW button at this web address:

    http://www.artistsforpeaceandjustice.com/

    They’ve had a presence in the country prior to the crisis, so they know the stakeholders and how to get donations to the people directly.

    I’d also recommend donations to the IRC:

    http://www.theirc.org/

    They have extensive experience in disaster relief in numerous countries.

    And also to IMC, as they have experience in mot just medical assistance, but in infrastructure rebuilding, and will stay to make improvements long after the initial crisis is over, and the flurry of media attention has moved on to other issues:

    http://www.imcworldwide.org

    I know things are tight for everybody right now, but pause to consider that no matter how bad your day has been it pales in comparison to the suffering these people are experiencing, and even $5 makes a difference if everybody gives it.

    What was it Douglas Adams used to say? “We have the first snowflake, let’s build a blizzard.”

    So pick one you like, and give what you can.
