Don't even know what to think...

about what is going on in New Orleans right now. What the hell? Do they honestly think SHOOTING at the helicopters trying to help them is going to get them evacuated faster?

I have my donations planned so far:
  • Michele is collecting money and schoold supplies to be shipped to the Astrodome to help the children with school - they will be displaced in a strange area for a long time, and without supplies.
  • My company is MATCHING donations made by employees to the Red Cross. This wasn't originally the charity I had picked out, but if they'll match what I donate, I'm willing to switch. I think they need another day or so to get it setup, then employees are asked and encouraged to donate.

    It is simply shocking. I am getting ready to start a fundraiser at my school for the Salvation Army. I wish there was more I could do.

    That's great your company's matching donations!! I wish mine was. I can't stop watching CNN.

    Just ran across your blog and thought I'd throw out my own quest for a hurricane fundraiser. My MOMS Club is trying to raise money for our mother-to-mother fund, which gives grants to MOMS Club members in need - and there's definite need now, more than the mother-to-mother fund can afford. Our website has a donation link and pathetically, only one person, besides me, has donated.
