Red Cross says "No Mas"

This is simply amazing. They DON'T WANT ANY MORE MONEY.

Last week, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies announced that the $1.2 billion raised worldwide in the 30 days following the tsunami was sufficient to meet the costs of the entire Red Cross tsunami relief program projected at this time.

Following the lead of the Federation, the American Red Cross believes that, with current contributions and pledges, it has enough money to provide immediate and longer-term lifesaving services to the survivors of the tsunami. Should the American Red Cross need additional resources to support the long-term relief efforts, we have no doubt the generous American public will step up and meet the need.
