If you would like to contribute to the relief effort, a great place to get info on where to donate is being compiled by The Truth Laid Bear weblog. I have made a contribution, and likely will be making more contributions in the future. If you don't know which charity to give to, feel free to contact me at mrclm AT yahoo DOT com
Thank you for indulging me in this post.
9-2 Update: Since this is a basketball blog, it's worth noting the efforts made by NBA and WNBA teams to aid relief efforts. NBA.com has a complete list of what teams are doing. Locally, the Sonics and Storm have rallied around Storm center Janell Burse, a New Orleans native with 12 family members who had to flee Katrina. The franchise is collecting money at Storm games, and you can donate by mail or at the Sonics and Storm Team Shop if you don't have Storm tickets.
