Earthquake relief

For anyone wanting to make a donation to assist in the relief of victims of the August 15 earthquake, I suggest that you go to Oxfam America. I know several people in the organization and that they do good work in Peru. There are other good organizations for relief work, like Catholic Relief. Cash is always the best option because contributions in used clothing and other items are just not convenient for immediate relief.


As far as I know, my wife's family are all safe and sound. They are only affected by the social and economic whiplash that's surging out of the earthquake.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just sent a few dollars Oxfam's way. It's the impotence that is most frustrating from this distance. You just want to be there with them.
