Navel-gazing and other bloggernacle festivities are great fun. But we need to do something to help those suffering in the wake of the south asian tsunamis. This is the worst natural disaster in recorded history; what will the Mormons do to help? The Church, through its Provident Living webpage, has some resources on how to help — primarily, through donations to the Church’s Humanitarian Aid Fund. See here. That’s a great place to start.
We can do more and act through quicker means than the Church’s humanitarian efforts. The Center for International Disaster Information (CIDI) has some helpful hints on how to help — basically, keep your canned goods in your food storage locker — send money, now. While many hubs are available to take donations, I would recommend the Red Cross, Unicef USA, or even WorldVision. American mormons are the richest, most blessed people in the world. Heaven forgive us if we don’t do something to help the millions affected by this disaster.
