Re: TE Calendar/Book for Tsunami Victims?
 
have you identified or do you have any NGOs oe other organisation in mind that you plan on working with or contributing the funds to??
if not then.. <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/members/clodreno/">claude</a> has the address of one organistation called <a href="http://www.aide-et-action.org/">action aid</a> on his intro. i'm sure this organisation exists in sri lanka, thailand and other affected places

i think he was sponsoring a child in tamil nadu (one of the worst affected regions) .. maybe that organisation can be looked into..
also perhaps... if you do go ahead with the calendar.. then you should decide on how to use the funds.. whether to just contribute the money in a general fund.. or to use it for a specific purpose such as sponsoring a family or to use it to buy food or clothings etc..
you should just keep in mind that a lot of bureaucracy exists in the south asian countries especially..
when it comes to government aid.. a lot of times the funds donot get tranferred down to the affected people completely...


if i can be of any help please let me know

Very good idea Adam. If I can help in any way just tell me.

My photos are available (if useful for this purpouse).

I think this is an excellent idea Adam. I don't have photos of the affected areas, but would be willing to help in any way possible. This tragedy has really brougth to light exactly how small the world is, as well as how tightly knit a community you have helped to create.

Because of being a member of TE, I feel a greater kinship to those who have suffered, and have shared worry and fear about our members, as well as people who have appeared in photos on this site. I think it is a strong testament to this site that you have been able to do something that brings people from all over together in such a way.

I have never travelled there otherwise than through the images of your site Adam, but be sure I want to participate in helping the victims of this desaster in any other ways...
Please let us know when something has been decided and maybe financial help is needed to accomplish your idea.

Indeed I agree but not on disaster-photo's, let's go for hope and more joyfull scenes as a way to look forward remembering good times.
I would be happy to share in this way, I will be going there in a short delay, if I can, I will look for joy in solidarity ...

PS fisherman would be a geat theme since I suppose they are the most affected group and in India one of the lowest casts.
