"An amazingly generous people." That's how a European friend of mine described Americans when we watched relief efforts on TV after a devastating flood in the Midwest. People had come from all over the country to help—either in person or by sending money and goods to people who were complete strangers in need.

The last few weeks have once again shown the depth of love and generosity not only in the American people, but in people throughout the world, as offers of aid continue to pour into the Gulf Coast region of the United States from individuals, relief agencies, and foreign governments in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. And so often, the question on everyone's mind has been: How can I help?

We'd love to hear from you!
