Here is a picture from the Tsunami the my younger brother Matt shot. There are some more pictures with Matt's commentary on them at his website. It's a bit more helpful to hear him share about each shot.
As you read and look, remember this: currently the US has designated about 350 million to the relief work; practically with support, supplies, transportation, logistics, I am sure it's far more hard dollars but....$350 million comes out to about $1 per American.
I don't know about you but I think we can do better than that as citizens of the world.
According to Matt, he saw the Red Cross and World Relief doing major work on the ground. I am game for choosing World Relief (http://www.wr.org) because I know they have solid infrastructure to get the job done and do the long term work as well. Just my opinion.
