Liberal Blogosphere for Hurricane Relief

The Democratic Daily has joined with other liberal blogs to raise money for Hurricane Katrina relief. Please help us reach our goal.

From Kari Chisholm, of Mandate Media and Chris Bowers, of MyDD.com, Liberal Blog Ad Network:

Hurricane Katrina has devastated thousands of lives. Today, we’re announcing a coordinated effort by the liberal/progressive blogosphere to help the victims of the devastation. Together, we’re going to raise $1 million for the American Red Cross – and prove that the liberal blogosphere can help our fellow citizens in need. Make a donation for hurricane relief.

As President Clinton once said, “There’s nothing wrong with America that can’t be fixed by what’s right with America.”

The most prominent lefty blogs in the nation, represented by the Liberal Blog Advertising Network, are leading the way by running donated ads and asking readers to join us in making a difference. Combined, these blogs will display their ads over 12 million times each week over the course of the campaign.

Of course, we invite all progressive bloggers to participate in our community-wide campaign – both BlogAds subscribers and non-subscribers. Get the HTML to post the ads on your own blog or website.

This effort is a combined effort of four organizations:

All of the proceeds will be sent to the Red Cross. Donations are being tracked by Drop Cash. Transactions are secured through Paypal. You can be certain that your contribution will be secure, for a good cause, and people will know it came from the liberal blogosphere.

Thank you. Together, we can do this.

Best,

    A “desperate SOS” coming from the mayor of New Orleans being reported on CNN right now.

    I am beyond outraged at the lack of response by the so-called “leadership” of this country. As I know are millions of others.

    Oh, so now the man who should be tried at the Hague is going to go on camera, with his father on one side of him and Bubba on the other.

    First the Homeland security did their song and dance, “help is coming,” (excuse me, help is there in Baton Rouge, not being deployed because the situation in “unpredictable” in New Orleans), then the response from the mayor of New Orleans, putting out a “desperate SOS.”

    People are going to be allowed to march away from the Convention Center. Estimates of marchers in the thousands.

    I’m sorry to express so much anger instead of compassion, but I think it stems from my powerlessness to help these people NOW.

    Okay, here’s Jr. with his Poppa and Bubba at his side. A day late and a few million people and $$ short, as always.

    OMG!!! He actually said, “We’re working hard” ARRRRRGGGGGGG

    You know he is desperate when he has to depend on Bubba to bail him out again.

    One dem (General Clark) calls Bush out on his handling of the disaster. It wouldn’t hurt for Kerry to join him, you think?
