Hurricane Relief?

Posted By on Thu, Sep 1, 2005 at 9:49 AM

Got an email from a Vermont blogger asking if anyone local is organizing a relief effort for the folks in New Orleans and surrounding areas. I haven't heard anything. Anyone else have info?

UPDATE: Here's a guy who's actually blogging about the scene from a hotel in New Orleans. Very scary stuff. The Interdictor is a good example of how a citizen media can supplement us folks in the press, who really can't be everywhere. Thanks to Bill at Candleblog, who has some other Katrina-related links.

UPDATE II: Julia Lerman of Don't Be Iffy posts a list of items and drop-off sites for hurricane relief. The VT National Guard will bring stuff down, as they're being deployed to help.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
