Mission: International Disaster Relief

$50: Would almost buy the cookware and tools that go into a ShelterBox, which ultimately can provide basic survival essentials for ten people after a natural disaster.

$100: Would just about cover the blankets, water-purification tablets, and water containers for one box.

$500: Would cover the empty container, a family tent, and the cost of transporting the box, depending on the location of the disaster.

$50,000: Would allow us to supply about 50 complete boxes, the difference between life and death to 500 people in a disaster like Southeast Asia's 2004 tsunami.
