Several of my friends from Gonzaga University are studying in Florence, Italy this school year. They were spending Christmas in Thailand when the tsunami hit. I have been unable to contact any of my friends, but news reports have said they believe the students were inland and were not injured. Please keep them in your prayers. I still would like to know how I could volunteer any time and effort in helping out in these countries that were so highly impacted. Anybody know of ways to travel to these countries on a college student's budget and lend any help possible?
