Ive already donated through CARE Australia, but I must say, the American goverments is being pretty stingy.
The Australian Government has pledged $764 million US, and we are a poorer country when compared to the US.
So I think a poorer nation donating more then double of that of the richest nation is pretty bad.

Well, we also sent a carrier battlegroup and a marine amphibious unit... those cost a bit of money to deploy too

(I'm not saying that I defend the decisions our government has made, and I'm not saying I approve of them... just stating a fact)

Remember the American people are also going to donate ALOT of money, more so than the australian people will. Remember our government is extremely poor, it's the people. The government is in debt $7,614,911,622,310.57 :shock: . If everyone would stopbuying bonds, the government would go bankrupt :shock: .

Actually make it $810 million as australia added 46 million.

And so far the australian public and corporate donations to tsunami disaster relief appeals have passed the $100 million mark. That makes an average of $5 from each australian, including kids, babies, anyone.

Think thats good, Michael Schumacher gave $10 million of his own dollars!

Just a little update, and i quote, "By comparison, donations to aid agencies in Britain have totalled $186.55 million, or just more than $3 each, while Americans have donated $257.3 million, or 88c each."

Sure the net total might be more, but the average donation per person is what matters, as Australia has a pretty small population.

EDIT:

Well just pledged another 1 Billion over the next 3 years for rebuilding roads houses etc, so thats 1.8 Billion all up from our goverment.

I knew their was a reason we re-elected howard.

Yep im sorry, that'll be the end of it, just the "American people will donate more the Aussies" comment made me a bit touchy, even though i know it wasnt meant in that way.

Ah it's no prob, I just want to keep this thread focused on the issue of getting them more money. I have no problem with the discussion that was going on, just don't want to clutter up this thread
