Katrina Help Lines from the KatrinaHelp.info team

Several founders and members of the SEA EAT (South East Asian Earthquake And Tsunami) blog & wiki, which gained worldwide attention in the Tsunami of Dec 2004, have remobilized volunteers to do their bit for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The KatrinaHelp Wiki Network was initially conceived in many different people's minds at approximately the same time worldwide. It represents a clear and direct effort at helping coordination, communication, and cooperation for rescue, recovery, and relief efforts.

This is the button for people needing help to call in to the KatrinaHelp.info team from a Skype account. Please spread the word so people needing help can call in. They have volunteers and associates from shelters, ER and other Emergency services on the ground with resources to help.
