Ann Curry Reunites Tsunami Victim and Family With the Aid of Twitter
NBC's Ann Curry spotted the messages and replied to Megan that she would do her best. Though initial efforts to track down Purdy using Google's People Finder failed, Curry didn't give up. She eventually located Purdy in a refugee center in the town. Curry quickly put Purdy on her cell phone to call her family back home in San Francisco, in order to let them know that she was okay.
The tearful reunion is at least one piece of good news to come out of the area, but please don't forget that there are plenty out there still missing and in need of help. We strongly urge you to do what you can, even if that means just giving a few dollars to the Red Cross.
