How To Help

The flags on all federal buildings in Canada are flying at half mast until a memorial service that is happening on January 8 in Ottawa.
The terrible events in South East Asia are almost unimaginable and I think that many people have a feeling of helplessness and a strong desire to help. I'm trying to figure out ways to help and maybe I can point to some places where you can help from a Canadian perspective as up to January 11th, the Government of Canada will match contributions, which doubles what you give.
I found out that I could contribute the points that I amassed from my Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum card to the Canadian Red Cross. Other charities with Canadian offices are Médecins Sans Frontières, Oxfam, and Unicef.
