I've found a really great way to help with Katrina survivors. Check out Katrina Housing. If any of you have a guest bedroom or as much as a vacation house or cabin, this is a way to really make a difference. I'm hoping to donate my farmhouse to a family that is anxious to get their kids in school while they figure out what to do next with their lives. I've asked my inlaws to do the same with the three spare bedrooms they have in their home in Mesa. Because no one will be returning to New Orleans within the next six months, or ever.
If you have no room to spare, donate now.
