When I spoke to my mom this afternoon, she was tearful and distressed by the earthquake in Sichuan and the thousands of innocent people who have died. Even though we don’t have family there, she believes “We are all Chinese and we feel their suffering as strongly as if they were related to us.” With an estimated 30,000 dead and more than 5 million homeless, this is a disaster of epic proportions. China has declared three days of mourning beginning tomorrow at 1428 (0628 GMT).

The ChinaSquare Galleryin NYC is having a fundraising event this Thursday, with proceeds going to The Red Cross.

There are also several Red Cross funds that have been set up.

There’s an interesting website called Fundable, that lets people set up funds for different causes.
