Donate to victims of the Indian Ocean Earthquake

There are now plenty of ways to easily send money to help the millions of people affected by the Indian Ocean earthquake. In the UK, you can donate on-line via the Disaster Emergency Committee website (as seen promoted on TV by David Dimbleby). Top marks to Amazon for quickly enabling direct donations from your Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com account, with 100% of your donation going to the British Red Cross or American Red Cross respectively. If you’re a UK taxpayer, please remember to tick the box for Gift Aid to make your donation 28% more valuable.

Even the corporate giants like Microsoft and Apple are providing prominent links to relevant charities (as well as some funds of their own, we hope).
