Tsunami Disaster Relief
As you all know, the Natural Disaster in Asia has taken over 150,000 lives and caused destruction beyond comprehension. This is a time where human acts of kindness are much needed and appreciated.
As we are fortunate enough to have thousands of friends, family and business relations reachable via email, we are taking measures to reach out in the capacity of a relief effort.
As you know, you can donate money and goods to many organizations including the Red Cross, Tsunami Disaster Relief Org, UNICEF and others. We are additionally offering the Royal Thai Consulate of Los Angeles.
The Royal Thai Consulate has been and will continue to routinely send containers of donated goods via Thai Airways to Phuket, Thailand for as long as it takes to get back on track. The consulate has advised as to what goods are most needed, and have made their drop off destination easily accessible. The goods most needed as of late include the following: tissue paper, sanitary napkins, kitchen/cooking supplies, and money. We concede that the economy has not necessarily been in favor of most US citizens, and extra cash is hard to come by. For this reason, your donations of thousands, hundreds, or even $5 is much appreciated. Consider this: even if 2000 people donate just $20 -- it quickly adds up to $40,000. We can't bring back lives, but let's work together to help our less fortunate friends get through this devastating disaster.
You can send donations made payable to:
Royal Thai Consulate of Southern CA
c/o Tsunami Disaster Relief Fund
611 N. Larchmont Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90004
(** The Consulate phone number is (323) 466-4812 -- but due to the high volume of calls they are receiving, you may not get through. Please use this number only if necessary.)
