How you can help New Orleans: Watch this short video

Three years and a few days ago, Gary Halbert and I were speakers at an Agora event in Baltimore.

The last day of the seminar, we were all following the news of a hurricane heading towards New Orleans, but it seemed Gary and I were the only ones there who were aware of what it would mean if the levees were topped.

Gary made a point of mentioning the situation as part of his talk and encouraged people to be prepared to pitch in and help.

This year, I spent several months in New Orleans advising various groups there and learned a lot about what the city needs to recover.

There is a tremendous amount of misinformation about New Orleans and you can actually help the city a lot by educating yourself and others. It’s a great town with great people and it deserves a lot better than its gotten.

How you can help

One of the things New Orleans needs is for people to understand what really happened there and how it could have been prevented.

Two of the groups I work with there just launched this short video on YouTube. When we were working on it, we had no idea another hurricane would be heading towards the city just days after we released it.

I encourage you to watch it and share it with others who you think might be interested. Thanks.

You can click through to the video on YouTube here and comment and rate it too.
