This may explain the generosity of Schumacher's donation, but it certainly doesn't diminish the gesture. It is amazing that the lives of so many
around the world have been touched by this tragedy. I learned that a relative of mine was in Malaysia, at the time. We should all find the
wherewithal to contribute something at this time of hardship for so many.
