I doubt if most of us can really imagine the reality of a large city completely flooded by the surge of a killer hurricane. One of the most historic cities in North America, and other beautiful gulf coast areas are now part of an unprecedented disaster that will take years to recover from. At this moment there are still many people stranded, and needing to be rescued. There are widespread power outages, a lack of drinkable water, food shortages, and the threat of imminent disease outbreak. Families have been wrenched apart, and there is tremendous suffering. Please find it in your heart to provide assistance to these unfortunate victims in any way that you can.
The American Red Cross is one organization to consider for any donations, but there are many other worthy contributions as well.
