QUOTE(rachelkleypassparrow @ Sep 8 2005, 04:39 PM)
I will be able to send some money at the end of the month. Better yet, my birthday is coming up; all be well and right with the world, I will see if I can send the amount connected to my age. If not, I will send half. I am on disability benefit for my condition, but I am also a survivor of a natural disaster and I would like to see what little I have go to the children of Katrina.

Not only that, I have a daughter, who lives in the US and I know how I would feel if I found she was a victim of Katrina. So, in effect, it would be for the fact that I am fortunate that my daughter is alive and well and pray that it helps reunite families and helps the dear little children and the other children,as well, who are alone.

Thats so sweet helping the children and very generous..just breaks my heart what they go thru..I do think it will effect them in someway..losing it all can mess a child up..maybe years after as well..
I have done all I can with help and cash..and my son helped with the Red Cross..I pray for all those in need at such a tragic time..Im just grateful my daughter is alive and safe..material items can be replaced, her life cant..I wanna say more but the words wont quite come out right..But any Mom would know what Im trying to say..and all those that have helped no matter how big or small,I know its so appreciated..Helping others always comes back around..

[COLOR=purple]

There are many EVACUEES from New Orleans that fled Hurricane Katrina and are now staying in North Central Louisiana in rural area churches. I posted a message requesting cash donations to the area. Some of the responses I got was horrible from folks. Things I wouldn't even dream of repeating. And I also contacted many agencies. It shocked me how some agencies especailly the one that is accepting HUGH donation flatly turned these folks down. WELL WITHOUT EVEN ASKING THEM AND ONLY BY WORD OF MOUTH WAL-MART HEARD ABOUT THE EVACUEES AND WAL-MART STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE AND PROVIDED THOSE EVACUEES WITH COTS, BLANKETS, PILLOWS, FOOD, WATER, TOILETRIES, CLOTHING, FORMULAS, DIAPERS, AND BABY FOOD FOR THE BABIES. I never liked Wal-Mart because of the service I received from some of the employees. WELL WAL-Mart has restored my faith in them. I know there are folks that are saying WaL-Mart won't accept FEMA vouchers. UNTRUE. In fact the EVACUEES of North Central Louisiana didn't even have FEMA vouchers at that time because they were FORGOTTEN EVACUEES.

THANK YOU WAL-MART for CARING, UNDERSTAND, SUPPORT, AND THE LOVE THAT YOU HAVE SHOWN TO THE EVACUEES. thumbsup.gif  thumbsup.gif

   I feel so bad for the many people that lost their lives to hurricane katrina.
What I don't get is the fact that many of them are now homeless, no food or water. And all the government can do is spend more money over sea's, but then turn around and tell these people I'm sorry!!!!
I heart goes out to these people and to their families....

My son and daughter cried when they saw the news about that happened......
How can we fix this problem?
Something's got to give!!!!!!!!!

  • In the beginning, there was nothing. God said, "Let there be light." There still was nothing, but you could see it better.

I can only conclude that you haven't heard the speach of Bush regarding all of that.  The fact is than Americans by the droves have been taking care of these displaced/refugee people as rapidly as humanly possible.  Feel sorry for them? Sure.  Feel bad about how they are being treated, never, since they are being treated as well and as fast as they can be gotten to.   yes.gif

Angel,

  I've merger your thread with a more relevant topic that addresses your question, what can people do to help?

Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan

"...man has an irrepressible tendency to read meaning into the buzzing confusion of sights and sounds impinging on his senses; and where no agreed meaning can be found, he will provide it out of his own imagination." ~ Arthur Koestler

Well, we're back.  We suffered little damage compared to a lot of our neighbors.  The majority of the people that I work with and that I know, including relatives have lost everything.  We are still looking for my Aunt and Uncle.  We have contacted the Red Cross and announced on the radio for them being missing.  Please set the word out if you can.  Their names are Charlie and Shirley Gagliano.  My uncle is about 80 yrs old and lived in St. Bernard Parish.  Knowing my uncle, he probably stayed. no.gif
