My heart is heavy for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The Red Cross had to cancel thousands of blood drive appointments due to the weather throughout the East Coast and central states. If you can go and give blood today or tomorrow, you'll be helping them rebuild their blood bank. You can also give monetary donations here. Doing something little, like taking 20 minutes to give blood, isn't just an act of faith, it's sharing faith.
Zeitoun by Dave Eggers is a must read on Hurricane Katrina.
