|| Web-sites worth a visit: Katrina Help & We're Sorry|
I have come across two web-sites recently that I thought our members and readers might be interested in/appreciate.
One is a non-Homeland Security site where help for the Katrina refugees is being sought and provided. They are not asking for money, but volunteers with time, vehicles, food, supplies, and temporary shelter. Perhaps you have an extra room in your house that could be offered?
The other site, I found often uplifting, sometimes sad, and even humorously on the mark. It shows a series of photos of people from the US, mostly holding notes, apologizing to the world for the election of Mr. Bush. The photos have also been compiled in a book, with a second book related to the response from overseas in the works. Enjoy...
HELP THE REFUGEES
“RELIEF EFFORT for temporary shelter, supplies, and relocation of refugees
We don't want any money, just your help. At this time Help The Refugees interfaces with National Washington D.C. Red Cross, local Nashville Tennessee Red Cross, Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) national liason, National Volunteers Active in Disasters (NVAD), and shelters in Texas and Louisiana.
2 million people are homeless. Everyone we talk to says the same thing: "I want to help but don't know how." Here's how: Help The Refugees doesn't want any money, just a room in your house for sheltering a small family or a few people. People are opening their homes and their hearts as far away as South Dakota and Long Island, New York.
To contribute, enter your email address to right ("Join the RELIEF EFFORT") or telephone 615 504.8432 or 615 902.0509. We need temporary shelter, dry goods, blankets, towels, and extra clothing, for all ages and sizes.
We also need volunteers in the office!”
“Some of us — hopefully most of us — are trying to understand and appreciate the effect our recent election will have on you, the citizens of the rest of the world. As our so-called leaders redouble their efforts to screw you over, please remember that some of us — hopefully most of us — are truly, truly sorry. And we'll say we're sorry, even on the behalf of the ones who aren't.”
