Donations are being requested by the American Red Cross to support relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The impact of this disaster is immense. There are currently between 299 and 349 confirmed fatalities as a result of the hurricane, but that number is estimated to reach into the thousands over the next few weeks. New Orleans took the brunt of the hurricane and is currently reporting between 54 and 104 fatalities. Please, donate to support the Red Cross’ Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. Every penny counts. And, if you know of any relatives or friends who have lost their homes, please let them into yours.
