Compassion will bankrupt you.  People busted at the seams when that tsunami killed 200,000 people.  Donations poured in.  Fine, it’s your money.  But if you’re going to use death tolls as the measuring stick for disasters I hope you realize it was only .003% of the population.  As your financial adviser I would recommend not donating more than .003% of your net worth.  That works out to $3 per every 100,000 you’re worth.
