Derek

Steph:  Hey, Derek, Have you seen all those links for, uh, making donations to the tsunami relief funds?

Derek:  Yeah. I sure have. It seems to be a fairly, uh, common thing on websites now.

Steph:  I know. I saw one on google. I think I saw one on craigslist. Where have you seen them?

Derek:  I saw ‘em on Amazon and a few other news sites.

Steph:  Mmmhmm. Have you thought about donating?

Derek:  Yeah. I thought about it. Um, the recommendations were to send some money because, ya know, products wouldn’t get there. But money might help out a little bit.

Steph:  Right. Yeah. I heard that sending products isn’t a good idea because, um, the people might not necessarily use the same products as we do.

Derek:  Yeah. And then they need to buy supplies and, ya know, be able to pay the volunteers that are over there, so.

Steph:  Right. That’s true. I think I’m gonna try to donate this week sometime.

Derek:  Sounds like a good plan. You’re a big-hearted person.

Steph:  I try.
