American Charities Raise $33-Million for Asian Disasters

The Chronicle of Philanthropy released the first real fundraising numbers I've seen to date on the pair of recent natural disasters in China and Burma.

"American relief groups have raised at least $32-million for victims of the China earthquake and the Myanmar cyclone. The groups say about $16-million has been donated to each cause."
Hat tip to Caroline Preston for pulling together the great research in pulling together a long list of foundations who have made big grants and the charities that have been in a position to put the good will to work where it's needed.

PND thinks that it is "disaster fatigue" that has produced lackluster fundraising...


I don't believe it. I'm more inclined to think it's the lack of compelling video in the mainstream media.
