Luckily, a response has been made to the earthquake in Indonesia which has now killed more than 5,000 people (last I heard it was only 2,500), more than 20,000 injured and left 130,000 homeless (40% of those homeless are children) according to the United Nations Children's Fund.

Survivors are going to be given, by the government, $21 each for clothes and household items, while families will get 26.4 pounds of rice. Those with damaged homes will be compensated, all this according to Vice President Jusuf Kalla.

I'm glad efforts are being made to counteract this disaster. The American Red Cross is also helping with the disaster so, if you can I'd give at least $5.00 to the American Red Cross.  And since it's a nonprofit organization, your donation is tax exempt. :) It may not seem like much but if... say 10,000 of us donate just 5 dollars, that's a $50,000 dollars already. Maybe that's not millions, but it's a lot more if say... 10,000 people in every large city donated that much. It'd raise at least a million, and all each individual would have to do is just skip buying maybe a diet coke and a sandwich for that day and instead open up a can of soup they probably have lying around in their house somewhere. It's a small price to pay for a good cause.

So donate.

One year ago, America and the world's richest countries, the "G8", made historic promises on debt, aid and trade for Africa and the world's poorest countries.  On July 15th, 2006, the G8 meets again in Russia. It is important to me that America's life-saving G8 commitments are kept, both at this year's G8 and back at home where it's up to Congress to keep those promises.

The ONE campaign put together a petition asking Congress and the President to keep the promises America made a year ago.  I think you should sign it (anyone from any country can, btw).

Not sure if you guys are, but I'm a ONE member. If you're not you can always go to the site listed here and check it out. Although this says Americans, ANYONE can submit a pledge. The most important thing you can do this year to end extreme poverty is vote on November 7th.
