Cyclone Giving

As we said yesterday, cyclone related giving is off to a relatively slow start as many donors remain hesitant to contribute while Myanmar's government continues to block aid from reaching the victims. How slow? Here are the tallies so far for a few of the charities that are engaged in the relief efforts (as printed in the Chronicle of Philanthropy):

Save the Children: >$3 million
World Vision: >$2.75 million
International Rescue Committee: $1.375 million
Mercy Corps: approximately $1 million
