Helping Katrina's Victims: Samaritan's Purse

Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit is asking bloggers to contribute to a list of relief organizations he's compiling so that we can help out those affected by Katrina. It is great to see that Glenn and other top-flight bloggers like Michelle Malkin, Little Green Footballs, the Volokh Conspiracy, the Truth Laid Bear, and many, many more are doing their part to help those impacted by this horrific storm and its aftermath.

My humble submission to Glenn's list is Samaritan's Purse. Samaritan's Purse is a Christian relief organization run by Franklin Graham, son of legendary minister Bill Graham.

They already have trucks rolling south, and have two disaster relief teams in Alabama. They will base in Mobile, Alabama and will work their way toward the Mississippi and Louisiana coasts, coordinating thousands of volunteers from local churches to rehabilitate as many homes as possible.

They also accept employer matching funds.

Help them help the victims if you can. Samaritan's Purse not only helps rebuild buildings, they help rebuild faith.

Dont know if its intentional, but you arent listed as one of the blogs on The Truth Laid Bear's list for sites suggesting donations. Just wanted you to know in case it was an error. People cant log their contributions under your blogs name. Then again, I could have just missed it on the list.
