HSBC and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies of Bangladesh (IFRC) have joined hands together to collect funds for the flood affected people of Bangladesh. Your small contribution can make a big difference in this initiative:

*Send remittance from abroad for flood affected people
*Buy a family kit worth BDT800
*Buy BDT100 coupon

Those who interested to donate from abroad are requested to remmit through the following account number:

I'm also following Flood news and want to help. I have spent lots of time researching Gujrat earthquake and what indian people did. They created so many website for gujrat earthquake , and they got noticed by non profit organization(small and big). Indian gov also created special sites for that and provided information where to donate. As we all know some people use this oportunity to make profit. I dont want to offent anyone, but if we start collecting money using any company or organization, some money can go to wrong hand. Best idea to have some specific sites where we will list only places where people should donate.
Also keep on mind now a days FBI can come after you if you collect money, I would never collect money personally.
I spent 2 hours today to create this:
bdflood.com , its a site we all can post message and news and pictures. and even market it on google(I dont mind paying that fee even).
I know lots of you guys know web development, would you like to join for this novel cause? Please go to the site or contact me.
Also let me know how I can help you guys.

I am part of a group called Proactive Bengalis, a organization that is based out the DC-Metro area with members all over the US. (link to the Proactive Bengalis website) (http://www.proactivebengalis.com)

They are sponsoring a flood relief drive. Donations will be sent to Professors in BUET who have put in place a relief system to ensure maximum aid goes to the needy. You might ask why professors at BUET and not BRAC or Red Cresent Society? The answer is simply reduced overhead costs. All donations will be collected online through Paypal. To find out more about the flood relief drive visit their website.
The following are two other links related to the relief drive:
