New Orleans Needs Help

I hardly know where to start with this. The tragedy of Hurricane Katrina left devastation across the Gulf Coast, but nowhere worse than the Crescent City, New Orleans, LA. For all intents and purposes the city has been destroyed and it's entire population displaced.
Those that have followed my web zine and this blog know I have a special love for the music of New Orleans, and aside from the obvious and horrifying human loss of this disaster I can only wonder at how much of that musical heritage (some of the most important in our nations history) is now lost forever.
It's going to take along time and a lot of money to get New Orleans back to its old self, but the most important thing is making sure that the people are taken care of. The need for shelter, food, medical supplies and treatment is first and foremost, and a donation to the American Red Cross will help in that effort.

I need to check if I can donate on that link/site from overseas (Europe).

Actually that's what Visa cards are for, too, eh?!

I'll try it.

It's breaking my bloody heart watching what's going on in New Orleans (and making me very angry at the incomptence of the government).

I've read somewhere that Fats Domino stayed in the city when the storm hit and has gone missing. Know anything about that?

I believe that as of this morning both Fats (rescued by boat) and Irma Thomas (fled to Baton Rouge) are both accounted for.

Yeah, thank goodness it looks like both Fats and Irma are safe.

Thanks for your help to raise awareness and funds for the New Orleans community and all affected by Hurricane Katrina, myself included.

I've finally updated my links page and have added yours. Props for an excellent page.
