From Maxed Out Moma, here is a list of agencies that are taking donations to help the victims - Hurricane Katrina Donations. Even if it is only $5, please give. So many of these people had so little to begin with.
As for Boomr (as well as some of my other friends) I have not yet heard anything, but that is to be expected at this point. I will let everyone know as soon as I hear anything. I know that he will be touched that everyone is so concerned about him. You can see how much of an impact he has had on y'all from just a couple months of blogging. Imagine the impact on someone who has gone to both college and law school with him. I couldn't even stay mad at him when he almost got us evicted.
I refuse to be anything to be anything but optimistic. After all, his mother still owes me a home cooked lasagna.
