Default Hurricane Katrina

Does anyone want to get in on a possible SteelersFan donation for the victims of Katrina? As much as I'm ashamed of myself for putting out the earlier thread about helping these poor people and the price of gas, I for one have the need to do something. I guess I hadn't realized the magnitude of the devastation. Babies dying and everything. I have a 1yr old and I don't know what I'd do if anything happened to him. Let me know if anyone has another idea. I'm thinking of taking in refugees.

i would but after seeing how un appreciated some of those ppl are, shooting at ppl trying to help and stuff, it made me mad, and plus they are moving some of those ppl in to my little ass town way in south texas, so if they ask for volunteers here i'll probably go help out, if i'm not in school.

Not quite sure...I'd like to specifically help out the kids. I don't know if there is a special organization for that or not.

One of my clients is going to be sponsoring a camp that is going to housing 250+ people displaced by the storm until they can move back...I don't have the details yet, but it sounds like any donations will be 100% spent on this camp, so you wouldn't need to worry about big percentages of donations being siphoned off for overhead and bereaucracy...

The American Red Cross is the probably the best way to donate. I told my wife last Tues, why doesn't somebody come up with a Sponsor a family, or host a family Idea.

If anyone is interested, this is the website for the camp that is aiding the people from Katrina. They are estimating costs of $5000 a day when the camp fills up, and until they can get some FEMA money, they are going to be hard pressed to keep up with expenses...
