The Shock Of Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina Disaster - New OrleansI was shocked to see the "morning after" pictures as they flashed across the news. When hurricane Katrina blasted the Gulf Coast region, not anyone could have predicted the enormous scale widespread destruction it would cause.

Who would think an entire city of more than 500,000 residents (New Orleans) could be wiped out so quickly? And the devestation in Mississippi and Alabama ...my heart bleeds for the survivors and victims.

The first thing my husband and I did was to set aside a fund for proceeds from one of our most popular websites, from which we will be donating 50% of all our retail profits from sales of Goji Juice through Best Liquid Vitamins this month (and possible several more months ahead) to help in Katrina relief efforts.

In addition, we set up a page with a list of reputable charities in urgent need of donations for first-response and ongoing reliefe efforts.

Plus - today I'm adding to each and every one of my blogs the Technorati tag in honor of today's "International Blogging for Disaster Relief Day"

Are you doing something to help? I would like to hear about it... post a comment with a link to your website or blog and tell us about your support efforts and/or charitable contributions.

You have a knack for
writing. I read about 20
blogs a day, and skim about
30 more, so I mean it! We
can all use improvement, but
you certainly are better than
most I've read.

I'm going to be starting a blog
soon, about keyword
(I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop
you a line just to get a little advice.
Ok?

Thanks kindly.
