Donate to the Red Cross

Like many others, I’ve been observing the effects of Hurricane Katrina through the news. I’ve been getting most of the information from the Web and NPR, mostly text and audio, and I’ve seen some pictures on news websites and Flickr. The devastation is astounding. I don’t know anyone who lives in the affected coastal region, but I have a cousin who used to live in Louisiana that probably does. I hope everyone affected whose lives were spared are able to regroup and rebuild with the help of the many agencies who react to such disasters.

This morning I’ve donated $20 to the American Red Cross, earmarked for Hurricane 2005 Relief, and I encourage you to donate as well.
