Instapundit has all your Hurricane Katrina donation points covered. I’m going with the Salvation Army:
A $100 donation to The Salvation Army will feed a family of four for two days, provide two cases of drinking water and one household clean-up kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets, and cleaning supplies.
That’s about $A130.
UPDATE. Reader Jeremy Garrett sends some easy donation news:
I just got an email from Apple Computer’s iTunes Music Store where I have an account. Apple is accepting donations for the Red Cross through iTunes and the Apple homepage. Apple set it up where people with iTunes on their computers can donate money to the Red Cross through the iTunes Music Store just like they would if they were buying a song. The donations show up on your credit card statement as a donation to charity.
It’s very simple and takes advantage of the secure payment method Apple already has in place.
UPDATE II. Arthur Chrenkoff compiles the dumbest and meanest quotes in the wake of Katrina.
UPDATE III. An announcement from Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco:
Three hundred of the Arkansas National Guard have landed in the city of New Orleans. These troops are fresh back from Iraq, well trained, experienced, battle tested and under my orders to restore order in the streets.
They have M-16s and they are locked and loaded.
These troops know how to shoot and kill and they are more than willing to do so if necessary and I expect they will.
Spells things out kind of clearly, doesn’t she?
