    Hurricane Katrina - How to Help - American Red Cross
    Hurricane Katrina - Canadian Red Cross

    hurricanehousing.org - MoveOn.org
    Hurricane Katrina has left hundreds of thousands of people homeless. But thousands of people throughout the region are stepping up to offer free shelter to those in need.

    Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund II - AFL-CIO's Union Community Fund
    Help Working Families Devastated by Hurricane Katrina

    also check out the AFL-CIO updates: Hurricane Relief News Briefs:
    "We also are looking for 1,000 union volunteers who will be deployed to areas where they are needed most as a part of on-the-ground relief efforts. Conditions will be very tough. Volunteers do not need special training, but must be healthy and able to work in a difficult situation."

    the author of this weblog has donated to the Canadian Red Cross Katrina fund as the AFL-CIO site (above) has no Canadian address function, and the Canadian Labour Congress had nothing at all as of 7 AM today - tho' a new labour day message has been added since Friday.
