I am asking my readers to consider a donation to the Salvation Army, who is providing shelter, food and other basic needs to many of the displaced families. Thanks to WalMart for donating a million dollars to support the Salvation Army's effort.
If you would like to join in the relief effort, please add your blog to the list set up on TTLB. We need to do all we can.
Be sure to stop and check out Instapundit for more information on where to donate.
Technorati tags: flood aid and hurricane katrina.
Flickr photo tags: HurricaneKatrina and more.
I still haven't heard anything from my father, but I've posted several links with information to, for and by local Louisiana residents for anyone needing more information, or for those wanting to send well-wishes:
WWL channel 4, New Orleans
WWLTV Local Forums
The Advocate, channel 2, Baton Rouge
