Time to Get Off Our Asses

I grew up in the Gulf of Mexico. I know hurricanes and tropical storms. This shit is bad. Real bad.

Watching CNN and MSNBC 24-7 doesn't help. Neither does running down there half-cocked. So, unless you are part of an organized relief effort like the Salvation Army or the Red Cross, stay home and write a check to them. Then no one has to rescue your sorry ass, and real lives might be saved.

Foregoing lunch out at the office for one week or date night with your squeeze of the week means having the funds to help the victims of Katrina. Send the $50 or $100 to SA or RC instead. Don't send stuff like food and clothes. It will cost too much to move and organize. Oh- and hell, it's tax deductible too for you assholes who don't do anything without a bit of sweetness in it for you.

Here's the contact info:

Salvation Army: 1-800-SAL-ARMY or donate online.
Red Cross: 1-800-HELP-NOW or donate online.

BTW- If you own a corporation that makes bottled water, first aid kits, RV's, boats, or life jackets, or tents, etc. and you want to donate them at no cost and ship them down, you might be nice enough to call SA or RC and donate those things. Or if you own buses that can transport the guys from the SuperDome to Houston, you might contact FEMA at FEMA 500 C Street, SW Washington, D.C. 20472 Phone: (202) 566-1600. Or the Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness Office at: Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness, 7667 Independence Blvd.Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70806(225) 925-7500(225) 925-7501 FAX .

And just for the record- I'm not going out Friday night. I'm sending what I'd spend on one night's tab instead. I can always have a hangover some other Saturday.

Hey, you have a great blog here!

I have a apparel dog island rhode site. It pretty much covers ##Coats for Dogs## related stuff.
