By now you're well aware of the mounting problems in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and many other parts of the country due to Hurricane Katrina. The best ways you can help victims, however, are through local channels. The McCormick Tribune Foundation is going to match donations up to $1 Million at 50 cents on the dollar, and check with your work about corporate gift matching which helps your money go further to help others. Also, there are places you can donate basic necessities, medical services (including blood), and volunteer across the area. Make sure you donate through verified aid groups, though, such as some of these and others that FEMA has noted.
