No guarantee for a shirt- she just says sometimes she sends freebies.
Has a separate section for Project Katrina. Says that they are doing projects in Renaissance Village in Baton Rouge, which I learned the other day is the largest disaster housing section in FEMA history- I think they said 3000. However, they made a point on a show the other night to say that the three trailers from Rosie's project has been sitting outside the village due to potential liability issues according to FEMA. One trailer is for a Head Start and I think the other two are for children's programs. They showed children getting on laptops donated by Bill Gates but they were under a tent area. They also said only about 160 of the 500 children there attend school, which has been a big problem as there is no recreation, playground etc offered for the children. The parents are just holding these children out of school though bus transportation is offered.
But at the end of the program, it was stated that after contact with Rosie's people, the trailers would be installed this week. More info on the Renaissance village can be found on our newspaper's website at www.2theadvocate.com
and just put Renaissance Village in the search engine.
By the way, this is an interesting article about how volunteers in New Orleans are "aghast at damage in homes".
On the other hand, this person found money in her walls- http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/2488571.html
