It's been 5 years since Katrina and some of these sites are still working. New Orleans and the Gulf STILL need our help. Shoot, they need our help now more than ever! Please check out these sites and help how you can.
Don't forget to visit this beautiful city, too!

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 New Orleans and other disaster affected areas.

The Episcopal Disaster Relief Fund
Noah's Wishes Animal Rescue
The Humane Society of the United States
Louisiana SPCA
The Houston, TX SPCA

i just wanted to post about a community i was told about by [livejournal.com profile] pushmearound. the community is called [livejournal.com profile] driveforlife and if you're an animal loving roadtripper, this is the community for you.
here is the information blurb from the user info....
This community was started after a realization that there really was no network in place on LiveJournal for those that may wish to help transport animals. A lot of users seemed unaware that there were even networks in place, and once aware of them, seemed eager to help. This is an attempt to give people who both need help and want to help in the endeavor of transporting companion animals from or to fosters, rescues, shelters, forever homes, or anywhere else they need to go a place to stay updated on current cries for help, or to post their own needs for help across the nation.
it's a relay where you help the animal get to a safe place.
there are a lot of transports that need drivers. please check it out.
thanks.
Lisa Dowaliby, former Ghost Hunter on SciFi, is an animal rescuer and posted this on her myspace blog. It's amazing and I had to pass this on.

"I found this piece on the craigslist pets section. It sums up the mindset of the people in the animal field, whether it be veterinary, rescue, rehab, or all of the above. You see, we KNOW we can't save them all. But for the ones we can save, what a difference it makes.

Adapted from The Star Thrower by Loren Eiseley


Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to
the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the
beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down
the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He
smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance
to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young
man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The
young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small
objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask
what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing
starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the
ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is
going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young
man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach
and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly
make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another
starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he
said, "It made a difference for that one.""
Just wanted to ask everyone to please keep clicking on the "click a day" even through Breast Cancer Awareness Month is over.
Thanks. :)
This fall marks the 10th annual Save Lids, Save Lives program, a program in which you send in pink lids from Yoplait yogurt products. For every pink lid received, the Yoplait Company will donate 10 cents to the Susan G. Komen foundation, an organization that helps further breast cancer awareness and research. Up to $1.5 million will be donated (with a guaranteed
donation of at least $500,000.)

Last year over $932,000 was donated to the Susan G. Komen as a direct result of participation in the lid campaign.

Interested in participating? Here are a few tips:
- Be sure to clean off any residual yogurt from the lid.
- Lids should be in one piece, though small tears are acceptable.
- All lids are due by December 31, 2007.

PLEASE do this if you can!

Thanks. :)
Don't forget to do your click a day for breast cancer awareness.

Also, please take a moment to click the other links, too.

As [livejournal.com profile] avador said in her email to me, I can't believe this poor woman is still in prison. Her father abused her sexually and physicall since she was 8 or 9, and one day she finally snapped and shot him when she was 17. She got life, no chance at parole. They couldn't even bring up the abuse at her trial under law at the time. Please take a minute to read her story and sign the petition for the new governor. I've been following her story for a few years now and have signed all petitions (there have been several changes of legislation during her incarceration and she is out of appeals.) Clemency is her only hope of getting out.
The Terrorists Who Aren't in the News ) reposting this from my friends list. thanks bethany, for posting this.
I recently found out that the Myrtle Beach Pavillion is slated to be closed and demolished after this season. I found this petition to save the Pavillion online. Please, if you've EVER been to MB and had fun at that Pavillion sign this petition and pass it on. I'm pretty shocked that it is not a historical site. It's been there for over 50 years and has even been featured in movies.
That's a lot of memories to just tear down and build over. :(
SAVE THE INTERNET!

Stop the Senate from Gutting Health Benefits
The U.S. Senate is about to vote on S. 1955, better known as the "Lose Your Benefits Bill," which would allow insurance companies to ignore state laws that protect health coverage. Women in every state will lose benefits.

Please send the email to your senators and then tell your friends. This is an outrage!
if you get one of those emails from some guy in africa or europe or something saying "you've won X amount of money and all you have to do is send me thousands to convert it" there is an email you can forward these emails to so the us treasury can research and try to trace these frauds.
the address is:
