A lot of readers and authors want to help out the hurricane victims of New Orleans and the Mississippi/Alabama coast. Below is a link with several options for giving. There are other efforts going on: RWA chapters are raising money to send to RWA chapters in beleaguered areas (in the New Orleans chapter, 2/3 of its members have lost their homes). All About Romance is going to start a book auction, to which I will be donating some of my books--I'll post the link to it whenever they get started.
The link below will take you to places such the Red Cross, Mercy Corps, and others.
My heart goes out to all who have lost loved ones, homes, and a sense of peace. You are in my prayers.
