I do not have the words to express my anger over the lack of response to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Too little, too late, they are saying.
I would be a much harsher critic.
The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) is responding to the needs of the mentally ill caught in the chaos. Donations are needed to help finance this important work.
Are you a consumer caught in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina without meds and without the resources to replace them? Are you trying to help a displaced mentally ill person? Please go to the NAMI | Hurricane Katrina Resource Guide. You’ll find hints on getting replacement meds – even if you’ve been relocated out of state.
Thank you so much for your generous gift on 09/03/2005 in the amount of $—– to NAMI, the Nation’s Voice on Mental Illness. With your support, we are building a future of recovery, respect, and opportunity for people with severe mental illness.
You will receive your acknowledgement and tax receipt statement shortly via postal mail.

I plan to give 2 days take-home pay over this weekend. Do you work? I challenge you to do the same. Unemployed or disabled? Give what you can.
It’s going to take at least 12 weeks just to get the water out of New Orleans. Count on giving more. Much more.
