This is a great tumblr thread about how foreign countries offer disaster aid to the US all the time, but it never gets widely reported, and the US government generally refuses the help. Don’t be fooled by the image, it’s just a drop in the ocean.

I am shocked and disgusted that I never knew of ANY of this. I like to think that I keep up to date on news and try to use sources outside the us like CBC and BBC etc . The next time ANYONE I know who is a conservative starts bitching about sending aid places/ immigration/ whatever is up their ass about “foreigners” I’m going to tell them about all the help we have been offered by various countries and how our government REFUSES IT and how we never hear about it in the media.

Liberated from a private share.
