2014 note: my attitude towards some of these organizations has changed quite a bit since this post.
Asia Earthquake and Tsunamis Relief, December 2004
Donate here to the Canadian Red Cross
“Red Cross volunteers and staff are currently providing clean water, food, health care and shelter materials to the people affected by the tsunamis in South and Southeast Asia.”
I think it is important to note their statement of principles:
“All Red Cross programs and activities are guided by the Fundamental Principles of Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality.”
Some other organizations taking donations are listed here:

I notice the Salvation Army is also taking donations for this disaster.
