Knitters Without Borders: Tsunami Relief

Knit bloggers tend to be kind, generous folks. Did you know that Yarn Harlot's giving drive for tsunami relief efforts, Knitters Without Borders, has raised almost $30K for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders? Dig it! You can participate too - just forgo that latte or that (gasp!) yarn purchase this week, set aside the funds, and donate to DWB/MSF. Then e-mail Yarn Harlot to report your donation. Click here for more info.

I noticed that the Canadian government is matching donations to MSF Canada. I wonder if this includes American donations? If so, would it be better to donate there? If I find out, I'll let y'all know.

Today we collect – but how much?
It’s amazing – Denmark has today collectively decided to turn in some pocket change in favour of the victims of the BIG Tsunami in Asia.

One of the biggest newspapers in Denmark writes about the different private contributions pr. country and pr. Citizen – the numbers are from yesterday; in Danish currency - Kroner:

Norway: 76 Kr pr. citizen – 344 mill.; country as a hole
Switzerland: 76 Kr pr. citizen – 548 mill.; country as a hole
Netherlands: 51 Kr pr. citizen – 836 mill.; country as a hole
Sweden: 37 Kr pr. citizen – 338 mill.; country as a hole
Ireland: 30 Kr pr. citizen – 120 mill.; country as a hole
Australia: 28 Kr pr. citizen – 499 mill.; country as a hole
Denmark: 25 Kr pr. citizen – 135 mill.; country as a hole
Finland: 24 Kr pr. citizen – 124 mill.; country as a hole
Germany: 23 Kr pr. citizen – 1.878 mill.; country as a hole
Saudi A.: 23 Kr pr. citizen – 570 mill.; country as a hole
Great Britain: 18 Kr pr. citizen – 1.055 mill.; country as a hole
Greece: 11 Kr pr. citizen – 127 mill.; country as a hole
Austria: 9,5 Kr pr. citizen – 77 mill.; country as a hole
France: 4,5 Kr pr. citizen – 276 mill.; country as a hole
USA: 2,3 Kr pr. citizen – 677 mill.; country as a hole

Take a good look – isn’t it remarkable how those figures looks. Why is Norway in front – 30XUSA – Come on USA – you can do much much better than that!!!!!

Best Regards

People in the world take the business loans in different banks, because that is easy and fast.
