New Orleans cleanup moving slow, needs help

If you are curious as to how you can get involved with the New Orleans disaster, there are plenty of ways to answer the call to action.

Depending on where you live, if you have an extra room or two for displaced residents, MoveOn has launched a Hurricane Housing website. This provides a way to for those generous enough to connect with people who have lost many (if not all) of their possessions.

As with previous natural disasters, the American Red Cross is a good place to start if you want to donate goods or money. As the article states, if you want to donate more than money, check in your local area first to see if there's an organized drive with which to get involved.
