The American Red Cross announced today that its disaster relief fund is completely spent, and that it is now borrowing money to continue intensive relief efforts across the midwest.
Many of my fellow volunteers from the Minneapolis Chapter are using their own vehicles and paying for their own gas, lodging and food to go help these folks. I’ll probably be joining them shortly.
Even with the volunteers paying their own way, these efforts still consume huge amounts of cash. To donate, please click here. Thank you.

Edward, what’s your local chapter?
I ask because some people are recommending donating to the chapters rather than the national organization, which doesn’t always put the money where the donors intend.
