Millions of people in the US are getting these stimulus checks from the IRS. One good thing you can do with some of it is donate some of it to help with the aid effort in Burma. The timing of these checks couldn't be better.



Here are some (reputable) places you can send some cash to, they were listed on the NYTimes website. Just $20 from 1 million people would leave the governments' paltry $3 million pledge in the dust.

Please donate. In the U.K., the Disasters Emergency Committee (a U.K. based coalition of charities) is trying to raise a desperately-needed 10 million pounds... the U.S. government's $3 million (for the U.S. charities) is much less than 2 million British pounds, so you can see how unhelpful it is.



The following page is from the U.K. - if you donate and you're from the U.S., please donate to one of the agencies listed above so you know what you're donating. http://www.metro.co.uk/news/article....&in_page_id=34
