Donation and help information for Orissa

People who want to know how they can donate money or supplies to Orissa have been having a tougher time finding out where they can send it. Contacts for helping in Sikkim are relatively easier to find. If you are able to send supplies through these people, the list of essentials for disaster relief ought to be the same as was distributed for the people in Sikkim. However, always a good idea to ask and find out before buying anything. Here are some contacts:
