The Left Finally Recommends a Charity!
Okay, a couple Left-wing bloggers did participate in last week's charity drive for Katrina relief, and they deserve to be commended. However, the major Lefty blogs did not; no charitable push from Kos, Atrios or the Huffington Post (which, to be fair, did link to an article
telling people where they could contribute).
However, one of the Huffers has finally stepped up to the plate
and recommended sending money to one group. I should say that this guy at least is not leading the charge in the blame game, but the charity he recommends and why he recommends it are mind-blowing:1-Help ACORN. Headquartered in New Orleans, these good folks quietly registered more bodies than anyone (including ACT) in the last election cycle, while doing pioneering work fighting redlining, pay day loans, rapid refund rip-offs from H&R Block and more. Their offices across the southwest (Houston, Dallas etc) are stepping up to help the same folks who were forgotten at the Convention Center.
Listen to ACORN's accomplishments
and tell me this is what is required now:ACORN's accomplishments include successful campaigns for better housing, schools, neighborhood safety, health care, job conditions, and more.
