Our hearts and prayers are with everyone during this difficult time in the Gulf Coast. This week has been hell on earth for many of the refugees, and those still battling to come out alive from this historic tragedy. We want to remind everyone today to make an effort to contribute to this cause by giving to one of the many organizations who are out there doing the best they can. Keep America in your thoughts and prayers.
Today, Friday September 2, has been declared as International Blogging for Disaster Relief Day. The idea is to get bloggers around the world to post about something constructive related to disaster relief.
So here are a few links I have come across:

Check Craigslist New Orleans and Houston ( they just added Baton Rouge, Mobile, Pensacola) for rideshares, housing, or volunteer jobs.
