Wenchuan EarthQuake in Sichuan China - What you can do to help.
As most are now aware, due to the intense worldwide media coverage, there was a massive earthquake in Wenchuan, which is in the middle of Sichuan Province in China. According to official reports, more than 12,000 people died, and there are many more injured or that have lost property. Even in Shenzhen, we are hearing reports of many families in their hometowns whose house has been damaged or destroyed and entire livelihoods have been lost.
The earthquake was a 7.9 on the Richter scale and tremors were felt across China.
The goal of this article is to give thanks to those who covered the earthquake quickly and efficiently within the blogging arena, as their help to get the word out was most helpful in getting donations to assist with the recovery, which is still ongoing.
It's our pleasure to point our readers to CNReviews.com who put together a comprehensive list of over 24 ways to donate money to help the earthquake recovery effort.
