News reports this morning of the Indian Ocean tragedy place the death toll near 140,000 with the numbers of injured reaching 500,000 or more. With such news, writing about the books I received for Christmas seems quite shallow. At Apple’s Web site, I found the following list of charities responding to the disaster.
American Red Cross International Response Fund
AmeriCares South Asia Earthquake Relief Fund
Direct Relief International International Assistance Fund
MÃ©decins Sans FrontiÃ¨res International Tsunami Emergency Appeal
Oxfam Asian Earthquake & Tsunami Fund
Sarvodaya Relief Fund for Tsunami Tragedy
Save the Children Asia Earthquake/Tsunami Relief Fund
