I hope Americans are enjoying the Labor Day holiday weekend, but I can think of more than a million who are not. I also hope that people everywhere will follow the events in New Orleans and the surrounding areas, and think long and hard about how fortunate they are. The level of devastation is mindboggling, so instead of bickering about who is to blame, why don’t we all just lend some assistance, even if it is only with our money.
The American Red Cross is accepting donations to support Katrina relief efforts – you can find the donation page here, or you can call The American Red Cross directly at 1-800-HELP-NOW. I have left a permanent link to this page at Thoughtmarket as well (under Katrina Donations in the upper right hand corner).
