Hope and Healing for Myanmar and China

The current death tolls resulting from the Myanmar cyclone and China earthquake are beyond heartbreaking and nearly impossible to comprehend. After hearing an update on the magnitude of destruction, which is still inconclusive, I just can’t help but feel powerless — desperately wanting to help out, but not being able to. That’s wrong. Remote assistance via financial contributions, driving awareness of how one can help, and thoughts of healing might not feel adequate, but these efforts no doubt make a difference.

Via the AidMatrix site, as an example, $100 can help 400 people and it takes less than a minute to donate. Sun employees can check the box to automatically have their donation matched by the Sun Microsystems Foundation.
