Click to Read

Obama To Mobilize Supporters For Hurricane Aid Obama said Sunday that his campaign would mobilize its giant email list of supporters — to volunteer or send contributions — as soon as the impact of Hurricane Gustav becomes known in the Gulf Coast. Obama said, "We can activate an e-mail list of a couple million people who want to give back." Obama has made no plans to travel to the Gulf Coast, saying he does not want to get in the way of emergency efforts there.

This is the way to go. Emergency workers are in place. There is nothing we can do until the storm passes but pray for everyone's safety.

Kate -- Today, the thoughts and prayers of all Americans are with those in the path of Hurricane Gustav -- and many of you are asking what you can do to help. We do not yet know what the impact of Hurricane Gustav will be, and we hope with all our hearts that the damage will not be as great as it was three years ago. But we know there will be damage, and there is something you can do right now. Your financial support will strengthen organizations like the American Red Cross that are evacuating Gulf Coast residents and planning to help communities get back on their feet. Make a donation to support the American Red Cross today. At times like this, it is our compassion and resilience that define who we are as a nation. Please give whatever you can afford, even $10, to make sure the American Red Cross has the resources to help those in the path of this storm: Thank you for your generosity, and I hope you will join Michelle and me in praying for the safety of those in the path of the storm and the first responders who are doing all they can to ensure the safety of their communities.

I think it makes so much sense to have an organized group of volunteers that are at the ready. I just got a text encouraging me to give a donation to the Red Cross from the campaign.
