The wine community is also responding to Hurricane Katrina. Paso Robles wineries and wine growers announced that they are raising money for hurricane relief. For example Tablas Creek Vineyard will donate 5% of its proceeds from any wine ordered between now and September 19th to the American Red Cross.
In San Jose, on September 10th, The Grapevine will host a special wine tasting and silent auction to raise money for the hurricane victims.
Otherwise, for direct donations, I like the Save the Children organization. They have an emergency program to assist children and their families who have lost their homes and their communities.
