The devastation and aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is unbelievable. We all need to see if we can help out those who were affected so badly by donating money directly for the Hurricane relief fund. President Bush has suggested that we give money, not goods, to those in need by sending money to the Red Cross or calling 1-800-HELP-NOW. Monetary goods are more helpful than tangible goods because the organizations that are helping can decide where the funds must be directed the most. We all need to give if we can; these people direly need our help. I know from first hand experience how uplifting it is in a time of disaster to receive help from the entire nation (my family and I lost our house in Hurricane Andrew in ’92 and were left homeless for months also). Realize that all of us can help and no matter how big or small the donation and it will be greatly appreciated.

    I went through my closet and looked for stuff that I didn’t need and I donated it to the victims of the hurricane.

    There is another way bloggers and other thoughtful people can help:

    I have opened forums at http://www.DisasterReliefIdeas.org for the discussion of ideas to aid disaster relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I am not soliciting donations, only ideas. Experts in aspects of disaster relief (housing, healthcare, rebuilding, etc.) are also able to rate these ideas, giving us a means of identifying the most promising ones, which will be shared with disaster relief professionals and persons in authority. Please help our society by contributing your ideas, especially if you are unable to contribute financially to relief efforts.
