Katrina relief effort

Posted by Craig Westover | 8:48 AM |  

Going off the grid for the weekend so no posting or responding to comments until next week. In parting, I’ll add my plug for your contributions to aid the disaster relief efforts in New Orleans for a group many readers might not be aware of.

Unlocking Autism is a parents group deeply involved in issue of vaccine safety and the campaign to stop the use of the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in all vaccines. That’s a controversial issue, but what cannot be disputed is that as bad as it might be in the Gulf Coast Region, its is much worse when caring for a child that even under the best of conditions can not emotionally cope with the environment.

Unlocking Autism is collecting money through their site at to specifically assist families with special needs. Among many organizations, it also deserves your consideration.

Shelly Reynolds of Unlocking Autism, a Baton Rouge resident with an autistic son writes --
Thank you all for all of your support and your prayers. Please keep praying for those people still trapped in New Orleans. There are people down there who need prayers for more than just shelter, they need prayers for their lives.

We love you all...thank you for your support.
I thank you as well.
