    Thanks DK. I stopped by our local Red Cross today. They are recommending cash donations. If you can't give cash, they would love some of your time to field phone calls and to coordinate how your local RC will be getting the supplies to the victims. They are in disaster mode and would welcome any and all help.

    Cities all across the South are sheltering familes that have evacuated. Many left with only the clothes on their backs. There are calls for clothing, bedding, toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, diapers etc. Many of the local churchs are asking for donations of this sort. They are meeting the basic needs untill the Red Cross and Fema can generate their paperwork. Your local Churchs may be taking these items to send to their sister Churchs in the South.

    They really need those donations, but unfortunately you have to be careful: every time there is a tragedy like this, there are always vultures trying to profit by getting people to donate money to them, under the guise of a charity - they keep the money for themselves. Make sure you know the charity is valid. Red Cross is good, but a wonderful sounding pitch from a church you don't go to may be a scammer.

    I have read that the best start is Red Cross. http://www.redcross.org

    They are providing clean water, food and shelter

    You can contact your local chapter also to volunteer; if you can't give cash

    Salvation Army also. You need to be sure it is a reputable organization, as said above.

    And they need blood donations - you can donate blood pretty much anywhere in the USA, and it will be helpful.

    Catholic Relief Services is excellent, too. www.catholiccharities.com They have a fund set up for Katrina victims, and the areas hit hardest: New Orleans, Biloxi & Mobile, AL, are very, very Catholic areas.

    Making safe hurricane donations

    If you would like to make a donation to help victims of Hurricane Katrina, but are worried about scams..we have some tips that may help. If you get a call or e-mail about making a donation, check out the charity first. Some scammers use sound-alike names to fool you. So write down the name then check it by running it through the Better Business Bureau at www.give.org.

    Or if you want the find out about the charity's finantial information check out www.guidestar.org or www.charitywatch.org from the American Institute of Philanthropy.

    If you do decide to give money -- do so by check and make it out to the charity not the person asking for the donation.

    Thanks! I was also going to suggest them, as they are very reputable, and as you said, those areas are very Catholic with lots of churches and such.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    My ebay auctioning thing is working.

    I am pretty much strapped for cash right now and I am walking and taking the bus around to avoid using gas, but somehow I've managed to raise $80 (in one day!) by auctioning items around my house.

    The money is donated directly through ebay to the charity of my choice, which is currently United way but there are other charities such as red cross and Salvation army too. WOO HOO! This is far better than I had hoped, I was only expecting to make about $25 so far. Plus there's that whole "one man's trash is another's treasure" so I am being repaid by being able to get rid of a bunch of unneeded stuff in my house.

    Off to sell more ebay items. If anyone else wants to do it, it's called ebay giving works.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.

    Unfortunately, I read where a Catholic Church (I forget the name) was totally gone in Biloxi. And, I didn't know that these were Catholic areas back there. Thanks for the info...

    I believe that you don't have to be Catholic for this charity to help you. If I am not mistaken, this charity provides a lot of services, based on income, for all individuals.

    You're correct. It serves you without asking your faith etc. Actually, when I went to donate, it told me to give to Catholic Charities USA, it's sister organization, just FYI.
