Katrina's Relief

The Truth Laid Bear is tracking charity contributions made by or suggested by bloggers for the purpose of helping the hundreds of thousands of hurricane victims. So far, the total's at almost $40,000. And that total comes from under 1000 blogs. You can click on the link to check out what charities other bloggers are recommending as well.

Yesterday I forgot to mention a very good organization, and checking this site today reminded me of that mistake. If you're looking to give more money to a charity, Samaritan's Purse is another excellent resource to fund; it's run by Franklin Graham if that gives you any frame of reference. There are any number of wonderful people and organizations who could use your financial support. Any charity at this point would be a good charity to fund.

My hat's off to all the bloggers who have participated so far. Our fellow American's can use all the help they can get at this hour.

Update: We're up to nearly $100,000 with only a little over 1,000 blogs participating/reporting. We're amazing!! This is very good news in very bad times. Keep giving people!
