UPDATE II: The BlogBurst Katrina Fundraiser is now over, having raised well over $1 million. Thanx and kudos go to N Z Bear, et al for the incredible efforts. Please take a moment to check out the new Web Relief Project Directory, which lists current web-based relief projects.
UPDATE III: Thank You!! According to N Z Bear, InsureBlog readers have donated almost $2000 toward the Hurricane Katrina BlogBurst Fundraiser. In fact, we're in the Top 40 of ALL 1,850+ participating blogs. Wow. BTW, you can still contribute here.
Regardless of your political pursuasion, fellow Americans are hurting, and we in the blogoshere can help.
N Z Bear is coordinating a special page to raise money to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina. The special "blogathon" officially began last Thursday (September 1) here.
