There are some big hearts here on OSO. Count us in for some cash.

Very awesome. I don't know many of you yet, but my vote is also for Cuda, if he has the time. Will look for the new post.

that sounds like the kind of job a lot of people on this site might be able to help with. This is what makes this situation so hard, not only are peoples homes gone but so are the businesses where they worked. I hate to say it since the tendency is to want to go back, but if there is nothing there would it be better if you are able to find a new job in a new location to go for that

I can easily get him a job doing that and a place to stay but it is in Ohio, my good friend own 5 body shops and we have a lake house that was just built that I know my family would let him use, even though we don't even know him, the problem I guessing for most of these people is relocating, but the offer is there if anyone wants to mention it to him. PM me if he is interested.

Just a suggestion and not sure if it is possible but what about setting a dollar figure goal and have some sort of meter showing progress on the site. It would be similar to how public access television use to do telethons and give everybody a goal to shoot for.

My father is in Baton Rouge and helping organize the massive transportation effort.
I have a good friend in Slidell that rode the storm out and he owns a small trucking biz. I might be hauling him a hydraulic dump trailer down to give him more capacity for the cleanup effort (where are they going to put all that crap anyway???)

My attorney Just came by and picked up my check to open the account. He also donated $500 to the fund. He said I should post who donates money. So everyone can be kept updated on the amount raised. He also said i should post amounts donated with the persons name. If you don't want the amount you give posted, you will have to request that. He also said in the past if names and amounts are posted, more people tend to give. I will have all all info in a few hours on how to donate. Thank you for the huge response!
