I received this email today, written by my sister and forwarded by my father. It’s been slightly cleaned up.

Hey Guys ,

My friend Rachel lost everything. Her apartment was by the levee that broke. She has a little boy named Alex who is 3 1/2. I am putting a package together to send to her for Alex. If anyone would be interested, Alex lost all of his movies, toys and books. I am going to get together as much as I can. If anyone would like to help, I promise I will pass around a card. Anything would be great. Please let me know. Attached is a picture of Alex. His Dad is in Iraq.

That’s so sweet. If you really want to know the truth, his whole collection of VHS videos and all his books were on the bottom shelves at home and I’m sure are ruined….just a thought. We will appreciate anything. You can mail them to me at:

Mandeville, LA 70448

thank you Erika….I will talk to you soon, when I get “home” tomorrow.

I’ve asked my sister what would be good to get for him and his mom. I hope other people hear about this family’s loss and do what they can for them, and for other survivors from New Orleans.

Alex, survivor of Katrina

Update:
Alex likes Batman, Spiderman, Monsters Incorporated, SharkTales, Nemo, Spot the dog books, and loves Peter Pan, Disney, and Dr. Suess. He wears size 3 pants, and size 10 shoes.

They’ve lost everything, and insurance won’t cover anything that has mold on it–only water damage is covered.
