The flooding in the midwest this summer is being compared to the inundation of Hurricane Katrina. Many people have lost their homes and livihoods, farmers have lost crops, the devastation is widespread and catastrophic. The American Red Cross is on the scene, but doesn’t have the resources to adequately cover something of this magnitude. As with Hurricane Katrina, they desperately need donations. They are facing a short-fall of 35 million dollars. Please give to the American Red Cross, so that they can give to those who need their help so urgently right now. Thanks.
