With the terrible earthquakes in the Turkey, Syria, and Afghanistan, we wanted to provide a open thread on how to help. What have your organizations been doing? Are there any resources that you'd like to share? Who do you think is doing humanitarian relief well?

In the meantime, here are some helpful resources from the P1 community:
