More Katrina aid...

Most of us can only criticize the nation's inept leaders for the current disaster unfolding on the Gulf Coast, or send token donations to the charities helping out.

But even the major charities are overlooking local charities, who have been helping, and who need supplies the most.

I don't like rubbing in someone else's blog too much, even if she's my writing teacher, but Gayle Brandeis is taking some proactive steps on her Fruitful blog. She has found a call for help on another blog and is passing it on - and is planning a reading session of her own to bring awareness to the public. In sharing the spirit of giving, I am providing the link to the call for help; that's the least I can do.
