Katrina is just ravaging the South. Some of the pictures are incredible. And the death toll is already at 50+. With flood waters reaching 20+ feet people have lost EVERYTHING they own. I find it hard to wrap my mind around that. Leaving home and returning to… nothing but destruction. Having to start over with nothing but what you were able to pack into your car. It makes me feel so greedy for taking so much for granted.
Especially with Cassidy. I can’t imagine having to tell her that her cat is gone, or all of her toys and clothes.. and maybe even a friend or teacher. All the kids this has effected. It’s just.. horrible.
I boxed up four huge boxes of baby blankets, baby clothes, toys, shoes and clothes that Cassidy has outgrown in the last few years a few months ago when she was visiting her dad. I shoved them in her shower since it never gets used and was planning on taking them to the Good Will. Tomorrow I’m going to find a close Red Cross and over the next few days take all the stuff to them. It’s also about time I do a cleaning out of my closet because I have SO many shirts that I jsut NEVER wear so I’ll throw them in the boxes too. Hopefully it will find it’s way into the hands of a family that Katrina has left with nothing.
I wish we could afford to do more like donate money or even TIME there helping out… but at least this is SOMETHING.
