Tidal Wave Disaster

The Tidal Wave Disaster really highlights how fragile life is. I am really proud of Canada's response to this disaster: the federal government announced that they would match private donations and freeze the debt of countries affected. Let's take advantage of this! There are many reputable Canadian charities accepting donations for disaster relief:

And many others. Canada currently leads the way in per-capita donations, let's try and keep it that way! After a season focused on gift giving to our friends and loved ones, I would challenge you to look at how much you spent to get your brother that new DVD, your mother that new sweater, or your friend that movie pass, and then consider if you could spend that much, or more, to help the millions of people currently in need all over the world, but particularly now for the people affected by the tidal wave. Live simply so that others may simply live
