A man who sold the Internet domain name tsunamirelief.com donated his earnings to Chabad of Thailand. Josh Kaplan, 20, whom the New York Post called a “wave rat” when he put up the site name for sale on eBay, gave Chabad the $10,000 an Internet gambling outfit paid for it, Reuters reported. Kaplan’s mother told Reuters that her son always had planned to use the money for charitable purposes.
