miniscule contributions
I haven't been following this thread closely, so I apologize if I am repeating information here.

Having just written a check to the American Red Cross, I was searching for other ways to contribute to the relief effort. I don't know how emergency management works, but my guess is that most of the relief is going to go to business interests and the middle class -- I bet that the poor are going to get a pittance. Well, it seems that Habitat For Humanity is gearing up to help.

I realize that the money I am donating is a mere pittance compared to what's needed, but what else can one do? Any other suggestions for NGOs that will be helping along the Gulf Coast would be appreciated.
