Before You donate to KATRINA CHARITIES

Make sure that if you donate money that it goes to charities that are legitimate. Below is a list of charities that have been checked out by GuideStar, a nonprofit organization that offers information about the programs and finances of more than 1.5-million IRS-recognized nonprofits. So I'm thanking you in advance for any donation no matter how small. Just pick one from below for go to The Network For Good for more charities. Founded in 1946, Church World Service is the relief, development, and refugee assistance ministry of 36 Protestant, Orthodox, and Anglican denominations in the United States.

Regarding Hurricane Katrina Efforts:

CWS is helping to support immediate needs and preparing for
continuing assistance, working within affected communities to meet the long-term recovery and reconstruction needs of the most vulnerable. Shoulder to shoulder with the interfaith community in the affected areas, as well as federal emergency officials, CWS will be providing vital assistance as families and communities work to put their lives back together again.

Convoy of Hope were in the South before Katrina made landfall.

I'm encouraging all American visitors to my site to donate used clothing, especially children's clothing to the Salvation Army. School supplies are needed as well if that can be spared.
Volunteers are needed at all the local Red Cross outlets to help. There's a search engine where you can find your local Red Cross headquarter. If nothing else you can contact them to get Natural Disaster trailing, CPR training, First Aid training.
