Macsmind is joining with bloggers around the world for "Blog for Relief Day", September 1st, 2005.

Our chosen charity is the American Red Cross - first on the scene and last to leave of most disasters. Give deeply!

It doesn't have to be only money. They also need food, clothing and even your skills if you are medically, or even technically qualified.

Help 911 Dispatchers who live in the affected areas. As a former 911 Dispatcher you can't imagine having to work shifts, and help others all while your personal life has been turned upside down. 911 Cares is a organization devoted to helping those who help others. Visit their site and give. Also you can send direct help to:

PSTC 911 CARES
230 Twin Dolphin Drive #C
Redwood City, CA 94065 650-595-5202 is the phone number

Reports coming that 911 Centers are so overwhelmed or non-operational that people are calling the Red Cross in Omaha for assistance
