This past week was crazy. On Monday 5/12, after the Sichuan earthquake happened, we tried to respond by sharing news of China earthquake pictures and blogosphere coverage, then later compiled an earthquake donation guide that is now up to 40 ways to give. I donated to American Red Cross and Mercy Corps so far, both of which are reputable US tax-deductible organizations with reputable local partners in China, the Red Cross Society of China and the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA). Oliver Ding then created a great slideshow version of the donation post. In short, I wish I could do more. Prayer, donation, and sharing information is what I’ve done so far.
