When I read news reports about the devastation in the Gulf, I get a little overwhelmed. I keep getting choked up and teary. It's just scary. I want to help, but it's not like i can just pack up and move to the area to help. I don't exactly have a lot of money. I plan on giving money and probably blood. I've listed some sites below that will be options to giving to the American Red Cross.

Here are different way to help Hurricane Katrina Victims.
shop new orleans! there's a link in this blog entry to a list of NOLA stores you can shop at online.

Please -- I *don't* care about credit. Not at all. I always thought it was such a petty, whiny thing anyway (I mean let's get real, that icon took me a whole ten minutes to make) and especially at a time like this, there are much more important things!

Thanks sweetie. xo

If you think that Chokes you check this out.. I've actually helped by donation.. but this person doesn't care.. AND SHE LIVES IN NEW ORLEANS! She doesn't want to help.. blah.. just either go to my recent entry or read this.

Please Read, TO All Anne Rice Fans, and to the Online Vampire RPer's

Please help a New Orleans resident Clear her head and focus on what's really important. Read this entry http://www.livejournal.com/community/anne_rice/277907.html?view=2316179#t2316179 and express your opinion to her. Give her the support she needs to keep her focused on helping her neighbors other than herself.

Even people who are not fans of Anne Rice, Vampires, or New Orleans could still be disturbed by this humans lack of clarity. Do whatever you wish.. I don't care.. but do not step on others to do so unless it is a Dire MUST!

i read that mess last night.
i do think the blogging may be in poor taste, but i think it's probably a coping mechanism.
but i'm with you, people need to organize and HELP.

One of my LJ friends who's a photographer is going to be selling prints online with the profits going towards the hurricane relief.

He's got some info about it @ his journal.

Oh, I almost forgot, his LJ username is [livejournal.com profile] jeremylelii.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Found an LJ community for you that might be intresting. It's a group of icon makers that are making icons in exchange for donations to charity.

i just gave some money to an austrian organisation to rebuilt the roads which were washed away. we have had high water for over 2 weeks, people drowned, houses, streets, motorways were washed away. there are still a few places which can only be reached by high water. it was just horrible. many people dont like the way the river danube was regulated but it was worth all the money they spent on it ... at least we had not that high water in vienna.

i will look into those sites, my work actually contributed 2 days of profitts to help the hurricane victims, a copy of the check is posted on the wall and it was over $2,700, i'm very impressed, i didnt think a showbar would have that much heart. :)
