I'm pretty much at a loss for words after reading this article from Reuters:

The State Department said offers so far had come from Belgium, Canada, Russia, Japan, France, Germany, Britain, China, Australia, Jamaica, Honduras, Greece, Venezuela, the Organization of American States, NATO, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, South Korea, Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Assistance ranged from medical teams, boats, aircraft, tents, blankets, generators and cash donations.
Some of the countries in that list really can't afford to help. Their money is, frankly, best spent at home. My brother has been to two of those countries to help THEM. But wow... whatever they have offered is too much. Such generosity from such poor nations is heartwarming and frankly, has me choking up a little.

Thank you, friends.
