Although I use this space as a look at customer and partner satisfaction, a quick "good luck" to Sara and her husband on their way to Waveland. I heard from several people at the office that her bake sale was a success. Here's more info about her quest to Waveland and how to support their effort.

As noted, this is just the tip of the iceberg in the ways we've heard of employees, our customers and partners helping those in need. It's refreshing to see the incredible support going to help the people in the affected areas: I hope that there is a similar outporing when the next earthquake hits Seattle.

Donation info: You can also designate donations to help those affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita at Americares (which has an astonishing 98.9% program efficiency, and disclosed that each $100 in cash contributions enabled AmeriCare to deliver more than $3,000 in emergency relief). And don't forget the Red Cross.
