Hackthorne and Formerstudentintern
I've no idea what happened to all those teddies; perhaps they sent them to Thailand or one of the other affected countries. Perhaps it was this flood of knitted toys that made the Red CRoss decide to sell them to supporters at home. It seems a good way to raise funds and gives people with more time than money an opportunity to help.

Too bad about the Teddies, huh? Thanks for the links, Betty.

Too bad their well-meaning gesture was not accepted. Makes sense though.

Hope you had a good day too
My mum used to knit dolls' clothes and Susan's Grandmother knitted little cuddly dools to raise funds.

Re: Sometimes the most well-meaning people
Yes,  giving cool cash seems the best way of helping.

Re: adnohr
The agony of waiting for news must be unbearable for your friends.  Also knowing that the supplies are there, but due to the lack of infrastructure the  this aid is not getting distributed as quickly as necessary. You are right we will not forget this very quickly at all.

I was reading in our local paper regarding money donations, too! They were saying the same, the shipping expense was costly, but the storage for goods was a huge problem. It seems the money is best suited so the folks in charge, like your son-in-law, can best get the needs met! Great info you provided, too! Shelly

There is much misery involved for so many caused by the earthquake there. Personal friends (originally from Haiti) are enduring agony with no news from their loved ones. Donations are pouring in, but there are many obstacles to speedy aid. We won't forget this one soon.

Sometimes the most well-meaning people
can complicate a problem. It's cash they need right now, Doctors Without Borders, Habitat for Humanity, all the others.
