Aid for Rita's (and Other) Victims

According to the Washington Post, relief agencies will not be able to use donations earmarked for Katrina relief [Registration required, or use BugMeNot] to help those affected by Rita. So we need another relief effort.

It would be really nice if we'd all donate relief agencies on a regular basis, not just when we see people being pushed away from their homes, so that the next time we have a national or global tragedy, the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Church relief agencies, etc., can say:

"Thanks, but just keep donating at your usual rate, and we'll have enough."
