Our thoughts are with all of the folks affected by Hurricane Katrina. We urge everyone to do what they can to help. There seems to be a general urging for cash donations, in lieu of volunteer or donated goods. In line with this, Beaconfire has made cash donations to help relief organizations purchase exactly what is needed in each location.
Do what you can. Every little bit helps.
Here are a couple of places you can make an online contribution:
