A good idea
The aftermath of hurricane Katarina is likely to be the biggest national disaster of our lifetime, and it will require ongoing aid for months if not years. Why not decide now to make a serious contribution -- DavidNYC at DailyKos suggests foregoing Christmas presents with your family this year and instead donating the amount that you would have spent to the Red Cross (see link at right) or other relief efforts. Do it now, while the magnitude of the crisis is still clear in your mind, and give your loved ones a card when the holidays come around. You'll be glad you did.
