First:

Please note that I am closing the Kids of Katrina Amazon whislist, as anything ordered at this point definitely will NOT get here in time.

Thanks again and again to everyone who donated through PayPal and everyone who has helped me get this off the ground and running. Your generosity with both your time and money and the warmth and love in your hearts for your fellow humans is something that cannot be overstated.

Just an FYI, the following Amazon packages arrived today: Janice, Jeffrey (4), Nancy, Allan (2), Elaine, June (2), Rodney, Elizabeth, Jennifer and Melanie. Thank you!!

The following photos were taken earlier today - since then several more people (including Beth, who found KoK through Google, Hi Beth!) stopped by to drop items off. I still have more at work to pick up, my sister has more at her work and my other sister has an SUV FULL of goods to bring over.

Keep in mind that I still have $2,250 to spend on supplies - the generosity of all of you cannot be overstated. We are probably going to do that shopping on Saturday (will document it photgraphically).

I'm such a damned fine human being, I get mentioned twice, by God!

In all seriousness, I'm glad I could help out, Michele. Wish I could do more.
