The people in Mississippi and Louisiana affected by Hurricane Katrina need our help. The damage caused by Hurricane Katrina has created a major disaster for those living in and around these areas, whether they were able to evacuate or stayed behind.
We will be making donations to the Red Cross and the Humane Society.

The Red Cross
As always, the Red Cross can be relied upon to provide immediate and emergency relief to people affected by disaster and long-term aid to help them rebuild their lives. This amazing organization continues to need our donations.
The Humane Society
The Humane Society is mobilizing an immediate response to help people, their pets, and livestock during this disaster. Dogs and cats aren't the only animals affected. Horses, cows, pigs, chickens and other animals that people depend on to make a living are in need of rescue and help. Animals in zoos and aquariums could also be in danger.
Both organizations are asking for emergency donations.
