In 2006, I had the honor of assisting with the ongoing recovery effort of the city of New Orleans through Boston Cares and HandsOn New Orleans. I wish I could say that I have been able to go back since, but that was not possible. So whenever opportunities come up to help NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) and HandsOn New Orleans, I jump on them.
HandsOn New Orleans is taking part in Get Out The Give, which is an initiative for individual supporters of a participating HandsOn affiliate to get out there and mobilize their networks to raise money before the end of 2008.
Lord knows that the work in NOLA is not over, though it takes a back seat in news coverage to the ongoing saga of Britney and TomKat.
This group, which has been at the forefront of the NOLA rebuilding effort, needs all the support it can get. Even if you can’t donate before the end of December 2008, please consider donating sometime-anything will be appreciated.
