    This is a good thing that they are doing… My only wish is that this does not turn into the same financial windfall for certain top people @ the Red Cross, United Way, and the usual charitable suspects, who when disaster strikes are the usual beneficiaries rather than the people in need…I’m still waiting to hear about what happened to Haiti and Katrina’s donations that are still missing and has not reached the people in need…
