December 26, 2004. One of the greatest natural disasters of our recent history destroys everything on its path: The Indian Ocean Tsunami. Over 200,000 lives are lost. Many more lose their homes and livelihoods. Within 24 hours, however, help is on the way. Nonprofit organizations, such as the Red Cross, Doctors without Borders and UNICEF, rush in their response teams to provide disaster relief. Their efforts are just one example of the significant work nonprofit organizations do in today’s society.
