Katrina has come and gone, but the aftermath is with us for quite some time to come. People are displaced all over the country. We have contributed cash to the Red Cross. We've contributed clothing and toys to collection points for the Houston Astrodome and other shelters.
I will be continuing donations through my art auctions. I have just listed a signed poster print of my oil painting "Summer Medley" on eBay auctions. The sale of this poster print will benefit the American Red Cross in Tyler, Texas. Tyler is the central hub of East Texas and from all local reports, is overflowing with its share of Hurricane Katrina evacuees. Houston receives a lot of media attention and a lot of donations, but some of the smaller towns may be overlooked. This is one opportunity to contribute to a Tyler fund.
