Totally NWR: Chilean earthquake relief

On the news this morning, they showed the effects of yesterday's rain in the south where the earthquake did the most damage. It was heartbreaking to see people who've already lost their homes trying to get the water out of their tents using a cup and a bucket or stacking their mattresses on top of whatever else they still own to try to dry them out. Several organizations have been building temporary housing, but the race is on to get everyone into some kind of shelter before winter really hits.

They also announced that a group of artists* has covered Chilean folk singer Violeta Parra's classic "Gracias a la Vida." Proceeds from buying it on iTunes will go to Habitat for Humanity to help build houses. Just figured I'd let you all know in case anyone's interested in Spanish music, any of the singers and/or helping out!

*Full list of singers: Shakira, Alejandro Sanz, Michael Bublé, Miguel Bosé, Juanes, Laura Pausini, Beto Cuevas (formerly of La Ley), Juan Luis Guerra, Fher (singer of Maná)
