New York Post Online Edition: news: "January 6, 2005 -- President Bush yesterday put his money where his mouth is by personally contributing $10,000 to the tsunami relief effort.
His action came as private and government donations around the world for victims of earthquake-devastated South Asia passed the $5 billion mark.
'This is by far the largest fund-raising event in history,' said John Hartman, vice president of Kintera Inc., an online fund-raising clearinghouse.
In America, about $1 billion was raised from private sources, and an estimated three-quarters of that came from online, said Hartman. "
