Start A Collection Can In Your town

To benifit people of the huricane katrina help start a collection in your town. Put out cans in local grocerie stores and so on.

Our local red cross has come up with the idea that with the 25,000 people in our town, if each person could come up with just $1 that $1 could make a big difference.

So if every person in our town gave $4 that would be $100,000 to go toward the people of the huricane katrina.

So far in the past 2 weeks our town has collected $34,000 through the red cross. Not to mention what has been collected in the cans placed around in the grocerie stores.
