Red Cross Flickr Set

The American Red Cross of NorthEastern New York has started an ARCNENY Photostream on Flickr. They have uploaded a set of 40 photos from the Rensselaer Floods Aug. 2008. It's worth a look - there are some great shots (I'm partial to the kitten photo, but that's just me).

From their Flickr Profile:
ARCNENY helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. Last year, nearly 1,100 residents of the Capital Region and surrounding areas were provided free, emergency assistance by ARCNENY after disasters such as fires, floods, and power outages. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money and blood from the American people to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs.
You can donate online to the Northeastern NY Red Cross and target their Local Disaster fund.
