Renew New Orleans

THE RENEW NEW ORLEANS FOUNDATION

The objective of the Foundation is to raise funds for local New Orleans non-profits to be used to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of New Orleans, especially children and the disadvantaged. All proceeds from Renew New Orleans’ fundraising activities are donated to charities that support the renewal of New Orleans as a safe, vibrant and thriving city. Contributions will be made to charities that enhance life through education, health, human services, arts, culture and humanities.

A foundation for New Orleanians run by New Orleanians.

I personally know some of the individuals working with renewnola.org and KNOW that all donations will go in the proper directions.

Hmm... I wonder why Andrei Codrescu didn't think of something like this for his fellow writers? Probably was too busy showboating and whining about the 'death' of New Orleans. Too bad, he's got a national audience to some degree... probably could have done some good for those same struggling artists he was talking about. Oh well, have a port on me Andrei.
