Help! The Hurricane KaTrina Victims are Crying Out

Help! The Hurricane KaTrina Victims are Crying Out
Celebrities like Percy "Master P" Miller, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Shawn "JayZ" Carter, David Banner and Russell Simmons are putting their resources to work. Join them in this quest to help the Hurricane Victims. Some of us might not have the millions that they do, but every cent counts.

Words cannot express how I feel right now. If you've been watching CNN, FOX, or any of the other news stations, you're aware of the loss of lives in New Orleans and the other Gulf Coast States.

My mind can't comprehend what they may be going through. My compassion for them has brought me to tears throughout the week.

I'm pleading with everyone to Pray, to Donate their money, items and/or their time to help.

Help! I plead with everyone who read this to help by any means necessary.

Contact your local Red Cross.
