Helping After Katrina

2 ways to help that you may not have thought about:
HurricaneHousing.org
An amazing site from the fine folks at MoveOn.org that lets you offer displaced folks a place to stay. Check it out. I just found a place to stay for the iPunk's team that is down in Gulfport trying to lend a hand.

DisplacedDesigner.com
It might sound silly, but this is a neat way to help creative pros get back on their feet. Very cool idea. Go offer some desk space.

Just a note - our relief/survey/reconnaissance team of 6 has been traveling through Alabama and Mississippi. We've spent a day and a half working primarily in Biloxi, Gulfport, Bay St. Louis and Wavelands...Bay St. Louis and Waveland one of the very hardest hit areas. We needed a place to stay last night...within 10 minutes, thanks to hurricanehousing.org, we were able to finda GREAT place to stay. This family put their life out on a line, opened up their beautiful home (2 kids), and had a big hot dinner ready and waiting for us. Had a pool, beds for all of us and hot showers. After nearly 40 hours without sleep, it was a nice place to rest. We were able to get a good start on our long day today because of it.
