It's been two months since the tsunami that devasted S. E. Asia. The media was slow to assess just how huge this disaster was, and the American public probably didn't donate as much as they would we usually do since it happened the day after Christmas aka "Debt Day" if you're like my family.
So, I've been saving this post till the time when news about the tsunami's aftermath would be waning, yet people's wallets would have recovered from the Giftmas season (yay! for income tax season).
If you haven't donated something already, please do. If you're a blogger, here's your chance to do what we do best- highlight this issue on your site while the mainstream press begins to ignore it. Right now the region is still battling the aftermath of the tsunami- including disease, orphaned children, and financial depression for the cities whos economies relied on fishing and tourism.
Props to the hip-hop artists who participated in relief efforts, especially M.O.P., who held a benefit concert weeks after the disaster.
