Sri Lanka donated $25,000 to the American Red Cross. They didn’t offer it. They donated it. According to the Reader’s Digest article about the Tsunami, that’s 50,000 homes in Sri Lanka.
The average home in the US is $264,000.
If you mulitply the average home price times the number of homes Sri Lanka is donating that means that Sri Lanka donated the US equivalent of $13,200,000,000.
If the 50,000 homes weren’t average, let’s cut it in half. Sri Lanka donated the equivalent of $6, 700,000,000.
Every little bit counts. And, for them, this was not a little bit.
