KATRINA VICTIMS HOUSING DRIVE!

For those who can, from the MoveOn web site:

Subject: Emergency housing drive at www.hurricanehousing.org

I'm sure you've seen the horrifying images on TV of destruction left by Hurricane Katrina, and the many, many people left with nowhere to go. You can help. MoveOn.org just launched a website, www.hurricanehousing.org, to connect your empty beds with hurricane victims who desperately need a place to wait out the storm.

You can post your offer of housing (a spare room, extra bed, even a decent couch) on http://www.hurricanehousing.org or search there for housing if you need it. MoveOn will pass requests from hurricane victims or relief agencies on to volunteer hosts, who can decide whether or not to respond to a particular request. The host remains anonymous until they reply to someone looking for housing. I hope you will post your own offer, or pass this on to people you know in the Southeast: http://www.hurricanehousing.org

Housing is most urgently needed within reasonable driving distance (about 300 miles) of the affected areas, especially New Orleans. Thanks!


COME ON, ARKANSAS--LET'S SHOW WHAT WE'RE MADE OF.

  2. I'm sure you would...and I bet they'd be happy to be where the water is frozen instead of filling their city.
