We raise by $600 million

Kudos to the US Government and Bush Admin for upping the total aid package for Tsunami relief and reconstruction to $950 million.

Most of the money will go to Indonesia & Sri Lanka since India & Thailand aren't accepting aid from other governments. In a good sign, some of the money will go to replenish funds originally intended for other needy nations. This will hopefully ensure that other countries aren't forgotten in their times of need.

Overall, it's probably time to start focusing on other countries which need aid. But it's still great to see that this aid aims to be pretty comprehensive.
