Because of circumstances, I am unable to help the tsunami victims in a monetary way at this time; however I would love to help by volunteering my time and energy (or skills).
After scouring the internet, and sending many e-mails, I have still not found anyone who can tell me how I can help.
I've already e-mailed USA Freedom Corps and the American Red Cross, but havent heard back from them.
If you know of an organization that could use an able body (with waaayy to much time on his hands) for this cause please let me know.

im sure even a 10 dollar donation would be appreciated-if 5 million people think that 10 bucks is useless.....-do the math

I sent $25 to the Red Cross Int'l Relif Fund last week. Not much, but all the not-muches added together are what count.

trust me, donations of $10 or $25 go a long way in that part of the world. $20 here seems like not much but to some people in Asia or India, they can live for a week if not more on $20. It's really sad to see the discrepancy.

the red cross is generally regarded as a safe place to donate.

Have you ever been to India? I hear it's nearly impossible to get around that country without facing crazy traffic that involves cars, trucks, buses, animals, people walking, etc...

I know small donations add up, and I have donated some $$, just not as much as I wish I could. I'm looking for another way to help, like loading a truck or WHATEVER I'm able to do. I just havent found a good avenue to do that yet. Maybe there isnt one.?

Yes.
I e-mailed them first.
I've e-mailed at least 10 different places, and I havent heard back from any.
