call 1(800) help-now

Obviously our thoughts and prayers have been with the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama this week.

The entertainment industry is making an effort to help those in need. NBC and MTV announced that they will broadcast concerts to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. On the NBC show, artists with ties to the affected area will perform. So far they've announced that Harry Connick Jr. and Tim McGraw will participate. I want to find someone I can email at NBC to suggest that they also invite Buckwheat Zydeco, Better Than Ezra and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Morgan Freeman is organizing an auction for hurricane relief at the Charity Folks website. I hope all the other celebrities who did so much for tsunami relief 8 months ago will help again.

how about marsha rickett in PR? if I remember correctly, she's a memphian (or at least a southerner) and would have a sympathetic ear, possibly.
I could probably look up the other PR folks I knew, if you wanted. it's better than just wishing to to happen...
p.s. how about shouting out to mark johnathan davis, who used to do promos with NBC folks?
