Hurricane Katrina: Blog for Relief DayThursday, September 1,2005.

In conjunction with other Blogs, 391, at the moment, I am soliciting donations for the relief of Hurricane Katrina victims.

Different Blogs will choose a charity, I have chosen the Society of Society of Saint Vincent de Paul

SVdP Katrina link.

St. Vincent de Paul (1581-1660) was founder of the Congregation of the Mission, Daughters of Charity, Confraternities of Charity and Ladies of Charity. A man of deep faith, keen intellect and enormous creativity he has become known as the "The Apostle of Charity" and "Father of the Poor." His contributions to the training of priests and organizing parish missions and other services for the poor shaped our Church's role in the modern world.

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is an international charity founded in 1833, it's origin in the United States goes back to Missouri in 1845.

All donations will go directly to to the Society's offices in Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana,

Instapundit Round-Up.
