Will You Help?

Today I am joining hundreds, possibly thousands of bloggers across the world in a single request. Will you contribute to the
relief efforts to help the Americans devastated by Hurricane Katrina?

America is no stranger to the devastation caused by hurricanes, flooding and earthquates. When the worst happens anywhere in the world, we are there to provide the necessities and to help pick up the pieces. Now the pieces are in our own backyard and those devastated are our fellow citizens.

America knows what to do. We know how to do it. It will take money to make it happen. You can help get it done. How? By giving. I strongly recommend both the American Red Cross and Samaritan's Purse. I have great respect for both these organizations and know that they are already on the job. Your donated funds can get the supplies to those who need them the most.

Be as generous as you can. Any amount will help those that are hurting so badly right now.
After 9/11, America stepped up to the plate to help. It's time to step up there again. I'm proud to say I did my part. Please join me. Let's hit a home run.

(Thanks to Hugh Hewitt, Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit, and NZ Bear for gearing up the blogosphere for this fund-raising effort.)

I've donated to the ARC and The Humane Society. I didn't know about the Samaritan's Purse and will explore the link in you post. Here's hoping that many will contribute.

On behalf of Franklin Graham, thank you for providing a link to Samaritan's Purse in your blog about the hurricane disaster. We are grateful for the assistance that individuals like yourself in the blogosphere are providing.
