    volunteering/humanitarian

    I would like to volunteer part time for free to help any one of the humanitarian agencies based out of Bangkok
    Does anyone know of any? Some were advertised on MSN but gave no Bangkok addesses, although I know most of the Tsunami victim relief headquarters are based out of Bangkok

    Riddle me this brother can you handle it
    Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
    Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
    Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
    It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
    I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic

    or you could always just go to Khao Lat (tent city) and start helping. I was there yesterday (caught a free flight on private charter and handed out food with a bunch of thai superstars)....good stuff. The relief/cleanup teams there have really outdone themselves, it looks nothing like the carnage of a week past. These people are bouncing back so fast. I'll be in Phuket for the next week on business, if you need some direction don't hesitate to drop me a PM.

    I was a little surprised. I called a couple of agencies eg UNICEF and some ministrys and all said they had enough volunteers already. They asked me if I spoke any other languages so I said I speak French and Afrikaans and they said that might be useful and put me on the volunteer waiting list (!!!!????)
    I met a man the other day whose father's philanthropic organization deals mostly with those with AIDS and he said they did some tsunami relief too, so he said he would contact me in the future.
    I would like to intern at relief organizations as I would like to figure out which ones have the most impact and what their policies are that make them so effective
