Hurricane Katrina Relief Efforts

Last but definitely not the least post today before I go. Today has been designated Blog for Relief Day to raise awareness for fund relief efforts to aid those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Thanks to The Truth Laid Bare for hosting this.

Most of you have probably already heard or seen the tragic disaster in Louisiana as a result of Hurricane Katrina. The pictures are grim; the devastation is real. Officials are expecting the death toll to be in the thousands. In the meantime, survivors have no food or clean water. NOLA has no electricity and is underwater, and could be for weeks and months.

I hope you all find it in your generous hearts to help. Donations can be made through the Catholic Charities. Beyond immediate help and aid, Catholic Charities provide long-term recovery work, including direct assistance to get people back into their homes, job placement and counselling. Their website is: http://www.catholiccharitiesusa.org/news/katrina.cfm. After you donate, you can log your contributions on: http://www.truthlaidbear.com/addcontribution.php.

The list of other participating bloggers are listed here.

Thank you everyone.
