This is.  Ordinary people helping ordinary people.

What does this show?  That the best way to help people is for other people to give of their own free will to those who are in need and not for the government to take money from some to give to those it decides are deserving.

It also shows something else:  That the Internet can be the most powerful force for good this world has ever known.  Just think about it; the World Wide Web has been a service available on the Internet for only 20 years (and available to the general populace for about 15 years).  It's still very much a frontier and look at what can be accomplished with it already.

There's a much longer essay about this that has been percolating in my brain for over a year.  Maybe someday I'll actually write it.
