    This gets better and better with all the well known faces jumping on board to help in such a worthy cause. I hope to actually catch a lot of them perform, particularly Springsteen, Kid Rock and Urban….good job!

    Awesome, the more big names they get the better. mandee, they had an aftershock this morning, registered (I think) 6.2, lots more buildings down, lots more deaths. It’s just terrible. Some medical aid has arrived, but so far (from what I’ve heard, may have changed by now) no anesthetic, so people are having surgeries (including amputations) while fully awake. I cannot imagine what they are going through, am donating what I can, and definitely praying for them.

    oh wow, i didnt hear about the surgeries etc, i only heard they had an aftershock. im for sure praying for them as well. i wish i had a job right now so i could afford to donate 🙁 it breaks my heart they are going through such terrible times. the surgeries while fully awake and alert are a bad idea. i know they have no other choice, but im surprised these people arent going in to shock or having heart attacks from the pain and stress. 🙁

    Don’t feel bad about not donating Mandee because you ARE donating through your taxes. Our government is sending millions which is great.

    oh, thats great to know! im surprised the government isnt being greedy right now. thanks for letting me know.

    No problem. Our government always gives in these situations. We are very privileged to be living on this side of the big blue marble, aren’t we?
