Help with the Katrina Relief Effort

The following is quoted  from the American Red Cross website, 8/31/2005 6:29pm PST

Hurricane 2005 Relief and other Related Events:
Victims of Hurricane Katrina are attempting to recover from the massive storm that is still making its way across the Mid-Atlantic States. American Red Cross volunteers have been deployed to the hardest hit areas of Katrina’s destruction, supplying hundreds of thousands victims left homeless with critical necessities. By making a financial gift to Hurricane 2005 Relief, the Red Cross can provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those in need.

National Disaster Relief Fund:
You can help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each yearby making a financial gift to the Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those in need.

Your Local Red Cross Chapter:
Your local Red Cross chapter is committed to meeting the humanitarian needs of the people in your
area, be it in disaster preparedness, disaster response, first aid and CPR training, or disease prevention.
You can help support your local chapter programs and services by a gift to Your Local Red Cross
Chapter. The gift will be sent to your local area chapter based on zip code.

International Response Fund:
You can help those affected by the West African famine and countless other crises around the world each year by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross International Response Fund, which will provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need. For the bomb emergency in London, the British Red Cross has not requested assistance; therefore the American Red Cross is not soliciting or accepting contributions for this emergency. The American Red Cross has also announced that the needs have been met for its tsunami relief program.

The American Red Cross is not a government agency and all Red Cross disaster assistance is free thanks to the generosity of people like you. The value of your donation is increased by the fact that the ratio of volunteer Red Cross workers to paid staff is almost 36 to one.

Contributions to the American Red Cross, a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, are deductible for computing income and estate taxes.

They made me a touch home sick.The weather here is getting colder, we are hoping for an early winter, which will mean SKIING!!! yay baby!!I posted a blog on lawyer jokes, I think I would like to post one on skier/snowboarder jokes. Got any ideals?-GenJLc

  5. My mom used to work for the red cross. They are a good organization. Also remember for those who may not have any money to donate, blood is free and easily donatable. Once they rescue these people it may become as important as water and food.
