Dear friends, colleagues and random visitor,
Please, if any of you have some money to spare, donate to Red Cross or another charitable organization to help the relief effort of those hit hard by the tsunami.
I haven't been able to get in touch with my aunt, most likely because the phone lines are down and/or jammed with other people panicking and trying to contact loved ones and emergency crews. According to a relative in Taiwan, she's ok but my mom is going nuts not being able to hear from her personally. We're so in the dark and helpless, so this is the only other thing I can think of to do. Please donate, even if it's just $10. Hopefully, this will reach my aunt in some way and help speed up the process of re-establishing the phone lines so more of us on the outside can call in.
