To those who sent me clothes: unfortunately I struck out with one charity today on the clothes. Apparently they are inundated. I'm working to find another. Worst case, my friend is working with a charity that is going to start taking clothing next week sometime.

Thanks again guys! I owe you beers!!

Did one of them come in a cereal killer box? They were just taking up room in my attic anyway. Hopefully someone will get some use out of them, but either way. Hope things are getting better out there for you guys.

Yup, your's came. Thanks again! Everything will find someone, I'm just going to have to find a group taking clothing. I just got back from dropping off the cleaning supplies and then helping bring a truck load of building material to a woman's home. I'm done, been up since 6pm last night.

Is there anything that is currently needed in a bad way? If you know of anything that is really needed could you post a list? I would be happy to get some stuff together and send out but don't want to send a bunch of random crap that is not not needed. Or is it better just to give money to the red cross?

The big thing right now is cleaning supplies, but now that I've worked with them, I'd recommend donations directly to this organization instead:

http://www.tunneltotowersrun.org/

Today they sent out multiple teams to clean homes and cook food, unloaded truckloads of donations, and I personally helped deliver a load of building supplies to the home of a woman that was wiped out. My first partner is heavily involved with this organization, particularly in regards to coordinating work parties. They are the first organization I've seen or dealt with that I feel totally comfortable recommending for donations. Anything that I receive (and certainly all of my volunteering) will be given to them anyway.

BTW, I'm seriously going to have to kick a few babies to make up for this stuff I've been doing, it's hurting the reputation I've fought so hard to build over the years. People are saying things to me lately that I don't know how to respond to. (The second part is actually true. It's uncomfortable!)

Thanks for the info! I'll take a look at them and see what I can do.

It's ok, we know you're still an ass. Just suck it up while you can you little do-gooder.

No, I don't like this! My skin is itching.
