The New Orleans and Gulf coastal regions in Mississippi and Alabama will need lots of help rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Rita also did a lot of damage along the coast near the Texas - Louisiana border. You can feel confident about donating to the Red Cross and Salvation Army.

While giving to hurricane victims is highly encouraged be sure to thoroughly check out the group you're considering a donation to especially if they approach you and especially if they pitch you by way of e-mail. We've already had reports of some unscrupulous characters collecting money to help their own bank accounts and not the people who need the assistance.
