Taking up Anders’ challenge

I have already posted about the Tsunami in my Norwegian blog, but who can resist Anders Jacobsen‘s call for links to feed a donation with muliplier effects?
(In my posting, I suggested that Norwegians should donate the money normally spent on fireworks for New Years eve to the Tsunami victims. I think this was one of those ideas that many people came up with at the same time – I soon as I had posted it on my blog, I heard that there already had been little “Tsunamis” of SMS messages swarming around the country. Fireworks sales were down (and donations up) quite substantially.
Here are Anders’ links to international aid organizations:
UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund)
United Nations’ World Food Programme
Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors without Borders (donate!)
CARE International
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
UK/Europe:
Disasters Emergency Comittee (DEC) – comprises a raft of aid agencies, including the below and others
British Red Cross
