Our community of bloggers began giving money as soon as they heard about the Tsunami. It has been so heart warming to see the outpouring of donation for the victims. We can do so much as a group and your knitting can help, too. Buy the Kisses and Hugs sock pattern that Susan designed (all proceeds going to Oxfam) and buy a second (and third) pattern to give to a friend who knits. You can read about Stephanie's selfless gift of giving a pair of the most awesome mittens to one lucky person. She has an easy suggestion on how you can come up with the money to donate. Many other blogs have links to organizations to which you can give.
A Salt Lake family (link to newspaper article) was on vacation in Thailand when the Tsunami struck. Kali Breisch (15) and her brother Jai (16) were swept away. Jai survived but was badly injured. He is expected to make a full recovery. Kali was lost until yesterday. Her sister and father found her picture on a bulletin board in a make shift morgue, that they were checking for the last time, before leaving to come back to Utah. There is a fund being set up for donations to be made in her name and all proceeds will go to help other Tsunami victims. While I didn't know this young woman it does hit close to home.
