Inspired by Hugh Hewitt, bloggers are targeting Spetember 1 as a day to post and request relief. Well, I'm a little early, since it is already Sept 1 here!
My chosen charity is Lutheran World Relief. Actually, they don't do domestic stuff...but their website has links to both ELCA and LCMS. As I mentioned before, you make the call. Right now, due to ELCA's stance on Israel...I lean to LCMS (and popped for $100 today).
As a back-up...go with Catholic Charities.
Please be sure to check out Glenn Reynold's list of charities on Instapundit.
The Truth Laid Bear also has a comprehensive lit of blogs (including yours truly) and which charities they are supporting. Add your blog!
UPDATE II: Workmate here in Chiner is originally from Louisiana. Initially, when the storm hit, he was a bit...'Ahhh...this happens all the time.' Yesterday was a little different as word of the levee breaks started hitting. He just heard back from family last night...everyone is well, but there is some serious property damage.
1/2 a world away...and we are still touched by what has happened.
