UUA, UUSC raise funds for Burmese cyclone victims.
The Unitarian Universalist Association and the UU Service Committee are raising funds to assist the victims of Cyclone Nargis, which hit Burma this past weekend, killing as many as 100,000 people, according to a U.S. government estimate today. (Here's the official announcement at UUA.org.) UUA-UUSC disaster fundraising efforts raised $2 million after a tsunami devastated Southeast Asia in 2004 and $3.7 million after Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005.
