The Little We Can Do

The thousands of displaced people, the victims of Hurricane Katrina and an incompetent government, need our continued support. Many people donated money in the aftermath of the storm and I think that is a wonderful sign of support from the American people.

I saw it myself in my non-profit organization, we raised millions in a couple of days and hopefully helped them get food and water and proper living conditions. But money isn't everything. And money can't comfort a bored child or teenager far from home and his friends. In those times, a book can be the most compassionate and close friend a person can have.

If you can, please go visit these two Amazon Wish List's and purchase a book or a game that will go to a displaced child. There's a lot of used books available to purchase and a lot of board games that could help these kids pass the time and make friends. I think it's a wonderful idea and I'm proud to share it with all of you.
