Craigs List for Katrina Relief: Donations, volunteerism, people and housing locators, even employment opps for ssurvivors.
Project Backpack: (Helping kids get ready for school with supplies, clothing, books etc.)
Hurrican Katrina Direct Relief: Two Moms across the country from one another helping organize direct relief to individuals and families.
Katrina People Finder
Hurricane Housing, a project of

Usually I read some heart-rending story online or see it on the news and it sends me over to the computer to donate. It's quite a haphazard thing. Perhaps a cool way to do it would be to make a monthly action item in my Palm (complete with alarm) for the next 6 months to help a different one of these organizations each month.

How do you decide when to give and to whom?
