Hurricane Katrina has hit the Gulf States very hard. Homes, like yours and mine, are completely under water and many others will be left homeless for months.
If it all possible, I am asking you to make a donation to the Red Cross. They will accept a minimum donation of $5 by credit card and every little bit will help.
This tragedy could not be avoided, it is an act of nature and these people need help. I am sure your donation will be much appreciated.
update 1:15pm, I noticed through my stats tracker that about 40 people have clicked on the Red Cross link. If 20 of those people made a donation of at least $5, that means at the minimum a $100 went to the Red Cross that they did not have before.
