You can't reason with hurricane season

You have to feel for the people of the Caribbean and Florida. It seems they've joined the "Hurricane of the Week" club. I don't recall a period where this area has ever been hit so hard so rapidly in succession.

If you can spare the funds, here's a few places (among many) that can put them to good use helping these people out. I'm going to name a few of the lesser known charities; I suspect most of us already know the big names, such as the Salvation Army and the Red Cross.

Volunteer Florida
The Humane Society of the United States' Disaster Relief Fund
The North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention
America's Second Harvest
Catholic Charities

Remember, one day it might be you who needs the helping hand.
