Volunteer This Summer (Cause Cober is Right)

28 Jul

Andrew pointed out that the Iowa flooding has devastated the midwest and yet nobody is covering it.  I guess election year coverage has really taken all the available minutes on the six o’clock news.  Well, that, and Shia La Beouf got arrested for DUI.

Wanna help real people?  I think you do.

Live in the area?  Able to take some time off?

Check in with the University of Iowa’s Flood Blog about volunteer opportunities.

Live far away?  Want to make your money count?

Donate to the Central Iowa Red Cross.

And check with your local church or synogogue, even if you are only an Easter service attender kind of person.  They will have a lot of resources to help.  Nobody in the midwest cares what religion your help is or what denomination your money represents.  They just need help.

    Um. The water covered the midwest thoroughly. What do they need the press for?

    Silly husband, people in the midwest don’t have gills!
