Today my family and I held a yard sale to raise money to help the Hurricane Katrina survivors. Watching the news coverage has really broken our hearts and we’ve been praying for them.
Turnout at the yard sale was probably the sparsest I’ve ever had out of all the yard sales we’ve conducted. I guess next time, I won’t have one on Labor Day weekend, but you can’t choose when disasters happen. We only made $76, but every little bit helps. Also we’re planning to make a bigger donation separately.
If you’re confused about where to make a donation, here’s an interesting site I found from the American Institute of Philanthropy that rates charities that are involved in providing relief to the hurricane survivors.
