    There's probably not much that will be able to quell your concerns. I hear someone on television talking about this and he said that by the time stuff is donated here and you add the cost of getting it over there, it would be more expensive that buying it over there and would take longer to get there.

    wonder if that's because there isn't a lot of infrastructure there to begin with, let alone a goodly part of your shipping industry being wiped out.

    One of the national morning shows (I think The Today Show) had a gentleman on talking about why, in this particular situation anyway, that money was best. He listed all the things that 62 cents in American money can buy in most of the countries ravaged by the tsunami... the list was extensive.

    Here is a link that lists various countries' government donations so far. It's extensive and if added up, the total has got to be astounding, even more so when private donations are included.
