I've just received the following email from the lovely Cooper and Emily:
If you can help by donating, posting about it and/or linking to their post, it would be a great help.
Emily and I have just put up a post offering to serve as a clearinghouse for those who are opening their homes to victims of Katrina and those who would like to help by way of sending supplies, especially those needed by families, directly to the people offering shelter. Our goal is to have people who are willing to send what they can (gently used toys, clothing, formula, etc.) post what they are willing to send in the comments section on our site. Then we are asking all those who are taking in families who need some assistance to come to our site and link with the people who are offering what they need. We would hope that people would link to our site and help spread the word. By doing this we can link directly with people who have immediate and desperate needs and we, as a blogging community, can really, truly help families and children right away. Thanks! Cooper
