a way to help the victims in the south asia area

on the very front page of amazon.com, you'll find this message:

All of us at Amazon.com are deeply saddened by the loss of lives resulting from the South Asia earthquake and tsunamis on December 26. We are offering customers the ability to make donations directly to the American Red Cross to aid the evacuation of survivors and the dispersal of first aid. One hundred percent of your donation will go to the American Red Cross. You will receive a confirmation email that may be used as a receipt. Thank you in advance for making any donation to help in this time of great need.

you can donate as little as $5, which is what i did. but i refreshed the donate page over the course of mintues, and look at this:
