The Reuters Foundation ‘Alertnet’ just has referred me to a very helpful resource for small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to provide help to hurricane survivors.
It’s a comprehensive web site that not only details what relief organizations are currently engaged in the Gulf coast region, but also describes the scope and scale of their activities.
I’d like to encourage you to go over this list, read about the missions each one of these groups is involved in, select one you feel an affinity towards and make a contribution today.
Recovery from this disaster will be a long, multi-stage process, but there is an immediate need right now to provide food, water, and medical attention to the people who have lost their homes and means of support.
This is the best list I’ve found of groups that are in the region and doing what needs to be done right now.
Please copy and paste this message to friends, family and colleagues. Time is of the essence.
This information comes from internet expert Ken McCarthy at: http://www.SystemFundraiser.com, a comprehensive source of fundraising advice for small business owners and entrepreneurs interested in helping hurricane relief efforts.
