Business Leadership: Donating to Katrina Relief
Americans are in need right now as a result of the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina.
There are plenty of things businesses and business owners and managers can do to help. Here are a few:
Donate personally. The Instapundit blog has a
huge list of links to charities
. Take your pick. Or you can give to the
by clicking on the donation banner above in this post.
Ask employees to donate (also, they can consider skipping a 401K contribution or two).
Pledge to donate a percentage of revenues from sales of some or all products sold.
Add a line to your email signature suggesting that people donate with a link to a charity of your choice. It is a gentle reminder to everyone who gets your email.
The idea here is to leverage your position as a business leader, because you are in communication with many people. Sometimes this gentle reminder is all people need to write a check.

new blog of Robert Levin
, Editor of the
New York Enterprise Report
, a publication serving New York small and midsize businesses. Thanks for letting me know, Robert! Great idea.)
UPDATE: The Truth Laid Bear site is tracking individual contributions and also linking to blogs that are helping raise money.
