Katrina Victums need our help

Although this is a texas holdem poker blog, there are events that transend our interests in entertainment and require our help.

Hurricane Katrina recently hit the gulf coast of the US, and the affects were severly damaging. I was sitting in Florida, just above where Katrina came ashore when it hit there, and can tell you it was not pleasant... and it was only a Cat 1 at that time. I was in Florida last year after two hurricanes to help with the clean up, and I can tell you that being without power for weeks at a time in the heat that they experience at this time of year, is not pleasant.

The People in the gulf region of the US need help. We all can pitch in by making a donation to the RED CROSS. ANY amount is helpful to bring these people some relief. They need simple basics of life... Water ... food ... shelter. If you have seen the pictures, you will notice that they are completely devastated. The Casino Town of Biloxi was wiped out, along with every casino there.

PLEASE take the time to make whatever donation you can afford to help with the relief effort for this disaster.
