ShelterFinder Needs Volunteers Oct. 6th, 2005 @ 04:28 pm
Apologies in advance for the crossposting...

Shelterfinder.org needs active contributors to take on a variety of tasks.

1. Data gathering - Shelter data needs updating, verification to keep the shelter data current. Data gatherers use search engines and other links to compile/update the data, but novel ideas on how to improve our data gathering would be great

2. Shelter Coordinators - We need people who can serve as liasons with shelters and relief organizations to establish direct communication so that we can share data and work cooperatively.

3. We need help with public relations and outreach to improve our visibility and communication

4. We need more technical people, especially php/msql coders to help Anand, who has supported and maintained most of the code to date,

5. There are a variety of other possibilities and untapped development options for those interested in contributing

Please look around the site and join one or both mailing lists indicated in the Shelterfinder Wiki Pages, http://www.katrinahelp.info/wiki/index.php/ShelterFinder . Drop a line to introduce yourself, get a login to edit the dbase if thats one of the tasks you are planning to contribute to, and share your ideas/feedback about the project

Looking forward to your contribution!

Ok, let's try to get this entry right! Here's the banner for my organization, born out of the desire to connect folks already helping out... tons of info at my site, which you can find through my personal journal. Thanks ;D

Communities like this one are so awesome.

In an effort to unite the many groups who are getting involved with relief efforts, I've started an organization that's the 'kid sister' of the Sister Cities International program:

Does anyone know of organizations/people who are doing a great job helping out? Would you like to unite folks you know of who are lending time and energy to this cause? Let me know and I'll include their story on my website. Click image above.

<b>Or</b> if you know a family, individual, or animal who needs help.... please let me know and I'll do whatever I can. Boxes are filling up and donations are coming in. :D

Looking to Donate? Sep. 16th, 2005 @ 12:52 am
I don't know if this is kosher with the mods or anything, but this is a request for donations for a specific family. I'm cross-posting this wherever I can to get the word out. If this is a problem, feel free to delete the post.

Do what you can.Collapse )

» Katrina, Natural Selection in Action
Anyone who, given 48 hours to evacuate, cannot manage to get themselves out of the path of a hurricane, is a terminally stupid genetic defective. These people literally had the time to WALK out of harm's way, if they had shown the personal initiative and survival instinct of even the lowliest cockroach.

So, before you throw away money helping the "victims" of Katrina, keep in mind that these are people that, in nature, would already have been removed by natural selection. They are the dumbest of the dumb, the most useless, the most violent, the most disruptive, the very dregs of society. Let them starve. Let them die of disease. Hell, if you stumble on one, put a bullet right between his beady eyes or a shotgun blast between her fat lips. This is an opportunity to remove the weak and the worthless from the gene pool. Do not waste it!
» Cards/letters of encouragement for evacuees
The Grass Valley, CA Elks are spearheading a drive for cards/letters of encouragement for hurricane refugees who are being sheltered in their Louisiana affiliates' programs.

I just spoke with a woman today and she assured me that they would give out every single card or letter to the evacuees, and that the people were truly appreciating them.

Here's their website: http://www.grassvalleyelks.org/Sub/Announcements.cfm

They also take cash/checks, but most of all they're looking for cards and letters.

Send them to:

Dawn Narvaez
P.O. Box 314
Penn Valley, CA 95946

You can get creative if you want - I know one family that's sending some paper dolls their six year old daughter made to kids in the shelters.

Please also let me know if there are other places I should post this.

Want to help out Katrina victims but don't have any money?

For every comment I get on this post:

I will donate a shirt, pair of pants, shorts, skirt, etc. in your name DIRECTLY to hurricane victims in Mississippi.

If you don't have any money or any way to donate, then this is your chance :)

And after you comment, tell others so that they can do the same ;]

» Threadless Hurricane Relief Effort...
Hey everyone,

This is a good way for those with less money to donate to the hurricane relief. Threadless.com is an ongoing t-shirt design contest where people contribute designs and vote on the designs of others (the most popular are made into t-shirts and are sold through the website).

Well, the wonderful people behind Threadless have designed a special t-shirt specifically for Katrina. It sends the message out there and costs $10. The big deal behind this is that for every $10 t-shirt sold, Threadless will donate $20 to the relief fund! Double what you've paid for the shirt!

Threadless.com Product - Regrowth: Katrina

The link above takes you straight to the shirt. It comes in girly sizes as well as male ones. Spread the word, people!

By the way, I am NOT trying to spam communities with this. I think the chance for people to double their donation to the fund and getting something for it as well is just a great opportunity for those with less money to donate, but who want to help. If this breaks community rules, please feel free to delete this post. I don't want to rock the boat.
