Donate to the China Earthquake Relief Efforts

A huge earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale hit Central China yesterday (May 12th) near Chengdu in Sichuan province.

Luckily in the southern part of China where I located at we didn't feel anything. However, I suspect this will continue to become a larger and larger disaster as the infrastructure in central China is nothing like what it is in developed areas like Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. I believe the recovery process will be massive.

Here is more information on the China earthquake from CNN and a map of population exposed to the earthquake.

Here are a couple links for donations to disaster relief funds:


I can't find any charities that have specific donation pages for the China earthquake yet, but I suspect they will be added soon.
