ICANN don't give names like un.org and unicef.org to anyone


Well, if we're talking semantics, the official sites for the UN is un.int, but alas the .org domains are also legit sites:

http://www.samspade.org/t/lookat?a=un.int
http://www.samspade.org/t/lookat?a=un.org

UNICEF for some strange reason just gets a .org: http://www.google.com/search?q=unicef+site%3A.int

/me donated £50 already... might have some other cunning plan too. :D

Well, collectively we'll be a tiny dent. But christ, already 60,000 dead and experts say that toll will at least double... this is the largest humanitarian aid effort in history, it's just unbelievable. Hopefully if enough online communities, school groups, congregations and such can come together to raise some funds, it will make things a little better.

My Mom works for Christian Children's Fund, one of the other organizations listed on the CNN.com article. It should be interesting to get her perspective on this, because something like this is pretty well unprecedented. If the money doesn't get there soon, disease and starvation could cause another wave of deaths, it's a real nightmare situation.

Thanks for the sticky, Drae. Full credit for this, though, should go to Caesar at Ars for bringing this to my attention with his front-page article.

Donation

Post by sun4me »

They collected over 2000 $ here at my workplace at IBM.

What I find very strange though is that nobody is donating anything if 10000 die in Turkey or 25000 in the Philipines or when 3 Million die in Congo because of the war and riots.

Why is it so popular to donate now? Have you ever thought about that?

I don't want to say, that I think it's wrong to give something (I donated 25$). It just makes me think.

Well, after a quick run over to the paypal website, they seem to have a donations link up. I would assume (and hope ;)) that they accept paypal. :P

If you are like me you have some unused paypal funds, normally a few dollars somewere between the $1-$50 mark stored in your paypal account because they are hardly worth withdrawing.

Please if you have some send them to here, were they can be put to a good use.

Rember than that $1 you have doing nothing might save a life.

Our prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives.
