Toronto Mayor David Miller calls on Torontonians to aid earthquake victims in South and Southeast Asia
  
Mayor David Miller is calling on Torontonians to donate money to relief
agencies working to help victims of the devastating earthquake that has flooded
the coastlines of several Asian countries.

"This tragedy is felt directly by Toronto's Asian communities," said Mayor
David Miller. "My heart goes out to the victims of this terrible disaster, and
to their loved ones here and around the world."

The mayor urged Torontonians to respond to disaster relief agencies' call for
cash donations.

"I know Torontonians are ready to reach out to help victims of this
earthquake. We know how expensive and time consuming it is to transport and
distribute supplies to the devastated areas. The most effective way to help is
to donate cash to a relief agency working in the area," said Mayor Miller.

To donate, call the Canadian Red Cross at 1-800-418-1111 or visit their Web
site at www.redcross.ca

World Vision Canada at 1-866-595-5550 or 905-565-6100 or visit their Web site
