Oxfam Katrina Relief [Sep. 1st, 2005|12:07 pm]

My own favorite charity, Oxfam, has a Katrina relief fund. They're good at disaster relief but also good at long-term structural help with the economic and social problems that persist years after a catastrophe. If progressive politics give you the willies, you probably will prefer the Red Cross. If band-aid solutions and a refusal to address poverty and discrimination along with disaster make you grumpy, I suggest you give a few bucks to Oxfam America at this link.
