American Tsunami Relief

CNN reports that 70% of Americans report having prayed for tsunami victims, and 44% report having donated money. 44% is a smaller number than I'd like to see, of course, but it's a larger number than I'd've expected. Almost half of Americans donated money? That really is heartening news, if it's true. It reflects that on the whole, we're more compassionate than I'd been under the impression we were. I'm not sure it's true, though. This is the sort of thing I'd expect survey respondants to over-report (like voting). Anyway, if you can, give.
