Flap’s Charity is Catholic Charities and is here. Please help them out. The need is great.

And you know you will be glad you did!


Today’s the day! Inspired by Hugh Hewitt, marshaled by Glenn Reynolds, and organized by N.Z. Bear, nearly 700 bloggers from 11 countries have united today to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims. There’s a plethora of charities to choose from–pick many!

I’ve donated to and am recommending Mercy Corps, which is teaming with Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) to meet the immediate and longer-term needs of people displaced from their homes in coastal Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. Mercy Corps consistently ranks as one of America’s most effective and efficient charitable organizations. Last year, more than 92 percent of its resources went directly to programs serving people in need.

I’m also donating to Hugh and N.Z’s respective charities–Canal Street Presbyterian Church, Soldiers’ Angels, and The American Red Cross. And Strengthen The Good, an early innovator in blog charity drives, is launching a matching relief fund in honor of today’s event.

Today is about Getting Things Done. I’ll keep this post bumped to the top, and open up comments for those of you who don’t have blogs, but want to recommend other charitable efforts/relief campaigns.

Thank you to Hugh, Glenn, , N.Z., and all the participating blogs. Thanks in advance to all of you who are contributing today. And God bless all of the Katrina victims and their families who are enduring unspeakable hardships.

Charity sees the need not the cause. Please give–and give again.

Flap will keep this post bumped up to the top throughout the day.
