Donations urgently needed to Houston Red Cross

The Houston chapter of the American Red Cross has a few hundred thousand unexpected guests. Many of these people, if not most, are arriving here with absolutely nothing. If you would like to make a donation that will make an immediate impact on those who have been devastated by this incredible disaster, please visit the following web page to donate directly to the organization that is currently trying to feed, clothe, and shelter thousands of these unfortunate people:

If you live in the Houston area, volunteers are urgently needed, especially those with job skills that are important at a time like this. Most urgently needed are individuals licensed to drive tractor trailer or other commericial vehicles, especially those with refrigerated trucking experience. If you can help, please call the phone number on this web page:

To everyone, you can help simply by cutting and pasting this plea into any forum you visit or in emails to your friends. We currently have people by the tens of thousands arriving, many of whom have exhausted their resources paying for hotels, and now have no place else to go. Please help!

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
