Muslim Hurricane Relief Task Force http://www.mhrtf.net This is a coalition of CAIR, ICNA, ISNA, MUNA, MAS, MANA, and more who joined forces in the days after Katrina hit.
The Mennonite Church http://www.mennoniteusa.org/ Hey, they're the Mennonites!
Both Muslims and Mennonites were among the first who managed to get to the theatre right away, and have been quietly doing everything from pulling people out of water to giving food and water. They have been so busy doing this that they haven't even had time to be on Larry King.
And here is the big list from http://faraichideya.com/

Families and Friends of Louisiana's Incarcerated Children (FFLIC) are organizing relief efforts in their area because, as they report, "the racial divide between relief workers and evacuees is stark." They are asking for volunteers (especially African Americans to help folk feel more at home) to come down to help them walk through the shelters, find people, help folks apply for FEMA assistance, figure out what needs they have, match folks up with other members willing to take people in.
You can also help by sending a check to the "FFLIC Hurricane Relief Fund" to: 920 Platt Street, Sulphur, LA 70663.

Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
