Helping with Hurricane Gustav

I know a lot of people in our community are disappointed by the disruption of events in Minneapolis-St. Paul this week but it is time for us all to focus on the potential disaster brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. History does not need to repeat itself and Louisiana is blessed to find itself in the competent hands of Governor Jindal in this crisis, who is taking aggressive action in preparation for Gustav.

We can join in the preperations by giving now, rather than waiting to see the track of the storm. No matter what, it’s going to be bad. Many Americans will be in need. Why not get a jump start and chip in today?

My chosen charities are the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, but please add links to others in the comments, especially local ones.
