Lots of people donated money, food, clothing and furniture to the flood victims over here John. Ikea even had a truck load of goods shipped down to the area. FEMA is stepping up to the plate unlike the New Orleans disaster. Plenty of support, but it's never enough. Squidward's daughter Kandice put together a toy donation drive and did very well. Check out the post on the old forum. Lots of help down there, you just aren't hearing about it.
