Katrina Volunteer-a-Thon

I know there are a lot of folks out there who don't have money to donate to relief efforts and live in areas that don't have any evacuees and wish there was something they could do to help. So I was thinking, I'm right here where there's plenty of need, so why don't I just do a volunteer shift in your place? This way, ya'll can feel like you're doing something because you're making sure that I keep going back to volunteer instead of wussing out and deciding that I'm too busy or too tired.

So here's what I'll do: for everyone who leaves a comment here expressing an interest, I'll do a four-hour volunteer shift in your place and I'll try to post at least a brief report about the work I did and the people I met during your shift.

This offer is open to anyone, not just the few folks on my flist, so feel free to let others who might be interested in taking me up on it know.

So, who wants me to go volunteer tomorrow?

P.S. For those living in the Houston area who are interested in helping out, the best site to get info on volunteering is http://www.volunteercenter.us/rsvp6.htm. It's updated several times daily with pertinent info and is a great resource, so please, if you know anyone in Houston, pass it on to them in case they'd like to get involved.
