Katrina Fundraising Efforts

Tuesday, September 6, 2005

After the tsunami I was very impressed by America's efforts to help victims overseas and of course I was not surprised to see that it has been the same way with Hurricane Katrina efforts.

I noticed that younger kids have especially been getting involved in the relief effort. Over the holiday weekend in Stonington, Connecticut, two young boys probably about 10-years-old, were sitting in the sun collecting donations for hurricane victims. My girlfriends and I donated a few dollars that we had in our wallets, but I didn't have much cash on me so I donated online this morning.

Also in Milford, CT on Labor Day, a bunch of little girls, all under the age of 10, were on the side of a busy cross section selling lemonade, holding signs that were larger than themselves and waving at passing cars in order to get their attention and raise money for victims.

In the lobby of my office building there is also an empty water cooler already filled with money for the Red Cross.

I know, many human victims have suffered due to the hurricane, but I also can't help but be concerned for the four legged creatures down there too. I think I might donate to the ASPCA's relief efforts as well. Take a look at their pet version of the Astrodome HERE.

PS: How is it September already, never mind the 6th?

2: The number of women I saw wearing white pants the day after Labor Day, tsk tsk.
