Help Szechuan Province Earthquake Victims

On May 12, 2008 an earthquake of 7.9 on the Richter scale struck Szechuan Province in China. The death toll has reached over 20,000.

I encourage you to learn as much as you can about this tragedy. Relief efforts are under way, but they have a long way to go to restore the survivor's lives to some semblance of normalcy.

I recommend that you go to the Tzu Chi Foundation web site to see how you can help. They are a respected Chinese charity with good works around the world. They are on the scene and can use your support.

Also involved in the relief effort is the International Red Cross.
