Help for flood victims in Louisiana -- email from Martin O'Malley:

Martin O'Malley - O'Say Can You See PAC

Friend,

11 years ago, our neighbors in Louisiana were struck by Hurricane Katrina, a calamity that devastated New Orleans and Louisiana. This past week, torrential rainfall has caused historic flooding so great that people are calling it the worst American disaster since Hurricane Sandy.

11 years ago, the people of Baltimore opened up their hearts to those in need. We sent two buses of the Baltimore Fire Department crew, computers, a full kitchen, and more because Americans are stronger together.

Today, as I did 11 years ago, Im asking you to join me in sending aid and relief to our neighbors in Louisiana to help them recover and rebuild what has been lost in this tragedy. Here are three great organizations that have been at the nexus of providing real relief over the past week: Project 70805, the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, and Volunteer Louisiana.

At last count, the flood has killed 13 people and damaged at least 60,000 homes across 20 parishes. An estimated $30 million will be needed to fund recovery efforts.

This is a critical moment to make a difference. Consider donating to Project 70805, the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, or Volunteer Louisiana. You can also learn more about what you can do to help.

Thank you for your kindness and friendship,

Martin

2. O'Malley has provided some good links.

It is sometimes hard to know where best to send financial help. The people in Louisiana are really hurting right now.
