I know lots of people are raising money to give to the Red Cross and  
different religious groups to help in New Orleans, but my nonprofit "Friends of  Big 
Band Jazz" (_www.bigbandjazz.net_ (http://www.bigbandjazz.net) ) is  working 
on a little bit different approach.  This actually started over on  the Kenton 
list and our FBBJ list.
Peggy and I had so many friends still living and working there (We can't  
seem to find anything out about them at all......), that we started thinking  
about trying to identify a few jazz musicians who are hardest hit, and  trying to 
help individual people.  We may not come up with thousands of  dollars, but 
every little bit will help.  
We are having a board meeting this week and I will put it on the agenda to  
see what we can do. 
Does anyone on this list have any ideas for us?
