86. If you have a few dollars left, please consider this
I've been a supporter of CoffeeKids for several years - it's a group that helps children of coffee workers in impoverished areas (thanks to our American multinationals, coffee workers now are basically serf labor). They build schools, provide textbooks, educational material and sporting goods. This is a very reputable group, and they get a tremendous amount of support from people in the specialty coffee industry who have a conscience.

They've started up a relief fund for Sumatra, which is an important coffee producing island. They have experience there and people on the ground, and 100% of the funds for their Sumatra Relief will be spent on helping children there who have been effected by the tsunami. If you can give them ten or twenty bucks, it would go a long way.
