Bush donates 10,000 dollars to tsunami relief

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5 (Xinhuanet) -- US President George W. Bush has donated 10,000 dollars from his personal funds to
President Bush was speaking at an end-of-year news conference at the White House before the winter holidays.(Xinhua/AFP)
the relief effort of tsunami-hit nations, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Wednesday.

McClellan, White House press secretary, said Bush has written checks totaling 10,000 dollars to several organizations listed on a Web site set up to direct Americans to various charities collecting private contributions for tsunami relief.

However, McClellan did not identify the charity organizations to which Bush contributed.

Bush has pledged that the United States will contribute an aid of 350 million dollars to help the tsunami-struck nations in SouthAsia and Southeast Asia.

Bush has been under criticism for responding slowly to the tsunami disaster that has killed over 150,000 people. Enditem

That's almost as much as Schumi donated,right?

$10,000 is nothing. The United States is only donating $350,000,000 while Australia is donating more than $800,000,000 - there's something wrong with that.

nothing, i don't think it proper to criticize any personal contribution...what can be objected to is how it's done (such as calling a press conference)

nothing, expect everything:

once again i argee that bush is NOT a man of ANY god, if he were he would remember the importance of giving the least fortunate.

the man has millions, if not billions, people with only a chunk of his weatlh and access have give millions to this cause.

and what makes anything bush does with his money pure evil is that as we all know his grandfathers wealth (thus his own) stem directly from nazi money, you know WW2 nazi money. i really could not make this up if i tried. that is just evil beyond evil. (p.s. its funny how everyone had something to day about kerry's wife's ketchup money, i guess there is nothing wrong with having nazi money and hoarding it, i mean even i who take great pride in knowing every evil deed done by these people (bushes) didnt know about the nazi money, just didnt think anyone could be that evil.

wait till you read the likely stories of people using individuals genorosity to scam them of their money or the gangs that head up the worldwide sex slave operations that this disaster creates a supply (even ABC news last night had a segment about the possible use of orphans for the sex slave traders)...now talk about evil

How much does the president of the usa even make? His personal funds and the united states funds aren't the same thing, unless I'm totally misunderstanding something. Any amount is a good amount
