DEAR FRIEND,

YOUR CONTRIBUTION CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The horror of the largest earthquake in 40 years emerged as the death toll soared over 55,000 and hopes faded for many thousands still missing.

Sunday's quake, the fourth largest recorded since 1900 and measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale, occurred after a rupture on the Indian Ocean seabed caused by the violent grinding of two tectonic plates.

Walls of water up to 10 metres (33 feet) high were reported around Asia, roaring ashore with unstoppable speed, sweeping people off beaches, flattening hotels and homes, uprooting trees and overturning cars.

The trail of devastation came after an earthquake erupted off Indonesia on Sunday, triggering giant tidal waves which battered Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Indonesia, the Maldives, Myanmar and Malaysia.

Just as we did during the terrible Gujarat earthquake of January 26, 2001, when we collected Rs. 26 lakhs (more than half of the total donations collected) in association with the Indian Red Cross, we appeal again for your contributions, to help alleviate the sufferings of the teeming millions along India's eastern coastline.

Kindly make your donation for the victims via ASIAN COMMUNAL RED CROSS SOCIETY, on behalf of the victims.

PLS REACH THE SECRETARY THROUGH THIS EMAIL TO OBTAIN THE INFORMATION TO MAKE YOUR DONATION;

Thank you for you kindheartedness and your sympathy. May God Bless You.

Thank You.

re: Worst. Spam. Ever.

The sad thing is I'm not surprised at this at all. There was a case here in New Zealand where a woman made off with some $200 in Tsunami relief collections when a store clerk's back was turned (she was later caught).
