She’s been a big bitch. And nothing tames a bitch like some cold hard cash. So please donate. If you are donating, please do beware of the scam Katrina relief websites that are popping up. If you have any questions on the validity of a website, it’s always best to stick with one of the FEMA approved sites. You can also do something for the pets which have been abandoned or lost during the disaster. Noah’s Wish is a not-for-profit, animal welfare organization, with a straightforward mission.  We exist to keep animals alive during disasters. Thanks to cityrag for the link.
