Donate time to clean up Louisiana/Alabama
I am trying to figure out the best way for me to help with the cleanup down south, post-Katrina.
There are a few things I think I can do. I can donate my car to charity, Mother Waddles seems to be a popular Michigan Charity Car Donation program. I can try to save a bunch of money on my car insurance and donate it, but I got a quote from Geico and it was more than Progrssive was charging. And I tried to get online quotes for homeowners insurance, but that's not as easy as getting car insurance quotes. Then I decided to give blood, why isn't the Red Cross asking for blood right now? Don't people need blood these days? They always ask for my blood, I'm O neg. So I will donate blood again soon. What else can I do? I search and search for ways to volunteer my time, but I must be looking in the wrong spots. Don't non-religious groups help people too? Here's one http://gbgm-umc.org/vim/vimcoords.htm
