Death Toll, Damage Map and Tsunami Animation

According to the American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP), a leading charity watchdog, as well as many other sources I have read, the best way to help the tsunami victims is to give money, not goods. As crafters, our first thought of helping often turns to what we can do with our hands. We give our hearts to others through our crafts. But it takes too much time and money to ship donated items overseas, and they need help right now. Both the AIP as well as have lists of reputable charities to which you can donate. Every donation counts, no matter how small.

    Thanks for the links, Donna. Those people need help ASAP and even though it would be nice to donate our crochet items, I think for the time being Money would be more appreciated. Maybe later we could get up a thingy to donate goods. By the way, your LYS looks completely charming!! Lucky Lady.

    There is a way to donate crocheted or other crafted items, and that’s selling them and offering the money we get to the relief organizations.
