One Small Difference

September 2nd, 2005 by Laura Moncur in News

After the devastation of Hurricane Katarina, I have heard a lot of talk about what to do to help the victims. President Bush is promising that “a lot of help is coming.” A lot of help is really nice, but I feel overwhelmed by trying to think of all that needs to be done to help the victims down there.

One small difference after another is something that I can tackle.

It doesn’t take a lot of money from you to help these people. It takes a little bit of money from a lot of people. Be one of those people right now. Even one dollar is plenty if enough of us give.

Other ways to help during this crisis:

  • If you live near Houston, Texas, the animal shelters there are housing the few animals that the shelter in New Orleans was able to save. Please adopt one of these animals.

  • If you were planning on a long drive over the Labor Day weekend, reconsider staying at home. Many of the oil drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico were damaged. Conservation begins with us.

What other things can we do to help the victims of Hurrican Katarina? Post them here on the comments. It’s up to you to make that one small difference today.

    I really like an idea being carried out in Minnesota. Two people are raising money to pay for 6 months to 12 months of rent on two apartments that would house the hurricane victims that are left with no home. In fact, I have brought the idea up to our city mayor. I hope it is a success. After all… Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish, feed him for the rest of his life. I believe that this is a good way to help a few start over and give them the courage and hope that they’ll need.
