Providing Relief  

There are, of course, numerous ways to provide financial donations to help all of those who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina. I would suggest, along with the Red Cross, that folks consider the Knights of Columbus. They have already pledged $2.5 million to be used for the following:

· $1.25 million to assist those displaced and made indefinitely homeless by Hurricane Katrina.
· $250,000 in immediate aid to Catholic Charities in affected areas.
· $1 million to help rebuild Catholic schools.

In addition, the Knights have agreed to match contributions offered in excess of $2.5 million which are made within 60 days of September 2. It should be noted that one hundred percent of these donations will be used for Hurricane Katrina relief. The donations are all tax-deductible.

If you would like to note your contribution in the blogsphere, complete the following steps:

1. Make a donation to a charity.
2. Go to here and log your contribution.
