Hurricane Katrina: Open Thread 6

• Views: 3,390

Instapundit has a great list of links to aid and disaster relief organizations, reproduced here to give it wider coverage:

***

FLOOD AID UPDATE: Here are some places you can donate to hurricane Katrina relief:

American Red Cross

Catholic Charities is involved, and probably has lots of resources to draw on in the heavily Catholic New Orleans area.

Austin Bay is recommending Episcopal Relief and Development.

Here’s a link to Mennonite Disaster Services. The Sanity Inspector says they’re highly efficient.

Reader Peter Viditto recommends The Mercy Corps

Here’s the link for Methodist Relief.

Lisa Larkin recommends Operation Blessing.

The Salvation Army does good work. (WalMart just gave them a million dollars, but that’s just the barest beginning of what’s needed.)

Hugh Hewitt recommends Samaritan’s Purse

Scott Ott recommends Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.

I’ll keep updating this as I get new suggestions.

Jay Allen has a further suggestion:

I would suggest people donate through their companies whenever possible. Most major corporations offer matching funds to the dollar for charitable donations. Find who’s collecting money for relief efforts, then file for a match through your employer instead of sending to the agency directly.

Not bad — if your employer is supporting this.

Chuck Simmins is tracking corporate donations.

Here’s the link for N.Z. Bear’s Katrina relief aggregator page.

Here’s FEMA’s list of recommended charities.

UPDATE at 8/31/05 10:00:28 am:

A reader forwards a link to the American Kennel Club: AKC Working To Provide Relief to Canine Victims of Hurricane Katrina.

UPDATE at 8/31/05 10:19:45 am:

Damian Penny is posting links to sites where Canadians can donate.

UPDATE at 8/31/05 12:01:47 pm:

Daniel Holt recommends the Union for Reform Judaism’s Disaster Relief Fund.

UPDATE at 8/31/05 12:06:20 pm:

LGF reader Akiva points out Jewish Hurricane Relief: Chabad-Lubavitch of Louisiana.

 Frank says:

The manner in which Americans "consume" music has a lot to do with leaving it on their coffee tables, or using it as wallpaper for their lifestyles, like the score of a movie -- it's consumed that way without any regard for how and why it was made. -- From "The Real Frank Zappa Book" (ch. 11)
