Red Cross. Both the Philippine Red Cross and the American Red Cross have
specific fundraising efforts devoted to the disaster. Donations can be made at
the various Red Cross web sites. If you prefer to contact the local Red Cross,

Large Enrollment Classes: Challenges and Solutions .
This workshop will address the challenges and possible solutions inherent in teaching a large class. There are management, logistical, and pedagogical issues; some unique to large classes and others common, but amplified.
