I will try to check in tomorrow with a few thoughts re: the Hurricane Katrina disaster and ongoing relief effort. Here on the Texas Gulf Coast, I continue to marvel at the great people who you will never hear about. They are just making it happen.
In the meantime, if you don't have a local charity, church, or relief organization that you are partial to, I would like to recommend one of my heroes for their work in The Sudan -- Samaritan's Purse. This is Franklin Graham's organization, and they are in the same business that the biblical Samaritan was, that is, putting chartible intentions into action and changing lives. If you want a list of other charities, check out Instapundit's Round-Up and Recommendations, which is also linked at the left sidebar. Check out NZ Bear's Relief Round-Up.
If you decide to make a donation, log your contribution with NZ. It will be interesting to see what the blogosphere can add to the relief effort.
And ... God bless the Gulf Coast, and the rest of America.
