Our deepest condolences go out to the people of southeast Turkey where a devastating 7.2 magnitude quake occurred on October 23rd.  We encourage anyone who wants to donate money to supplies to visit the websites of the American Red Cross, the IFRC (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies), or other humanitarian organizations to see how you can help.
