The death toll from last Tuesdays Tsunami in Samoa and Tonga has reached 177. We derive so much enjoyment with the culture they created that it is only fitting that we should give them a hand in their time of need.
If you would like to help these island residents out, may I suggest a donation to one of the following charities. The Salvation Army,or the American Red Cross. Both organizations do good work after disasters. From personal experience, after the flood in Grand Forks North Dakota in 1997, I can say that these 2 organizations were by far the most help.
Take a moment and make a donation. I'm sure they will appreciate a contribution of any amount.
