Wine Blogger Beau at BasicJuice is spear-heading an effort to help wine drinkers decide if/how much they can give.
Let’s nourish our giving side and help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Here’s the idea: Take the amount of ca$h you spend on wine/vin/wein/vino over the course of 1 week, 1 month, or even 1 year and donate it to…
- Red Cross
- Second Harvest
- Catholic Charities
- Direct Relief
- Feed the Children
- Habitat for Humanity
- the Humane Society
- Noah’s Wish
- the Salvation Army
- United Jewish Communities
- United Way
Depending on where you live, you may also be able to house victims. Let us be Liebe Menschen and let the kindness flow.
Additionally, Wine Blogger Mike from Shiraz Shiraz adds:
In the Social Forum on eBob several individuals have offered to match any donation you can make (up to a total of $5,000). My wife and I gave to the Red Cross and then emailed in our receipts. It is one way to effectively double your contribution.
Every little bit counts, even from the small wine blog community.
