While sitting in Wendy's with my son and my photographer-buddy Chris North tonight, discussing the damage to New Orleans, my cell phone rings. It is GG friend Dwayne Hills, aka MrJazz.

As I reported earlier, Dwayne and his family are alive and well, though they lost everything to the storm and floods of New Orleans. While we should all rejoice that Dwayne is okay, he is now without a job (his company's offices are gone), his computers, and his camera. In addition, his family is homeless.

They're okay -- for now -- but will be wondering what they will do next when the relief runs out. I will be in touch with Dwayne again on Sunday to get some specific info from him about his family's immediate needs in addition to whatever comes next.

I think it would be a wonderful gesture of this community to rally behind one of our own and help him and his family out in whatever way we can. Even if everyone who reads this message is able to send Dwayne $10, it could make a huge difference.

Like I said, I'll get more info from him soon. In the meantime, let's see if GG can "adopt" one of our own in his time of need. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Even if he did have a Paypal account, it's going to be hard for him to access it without a computer.
Unless he's close to someone from GG down in that area.

Yes I understand that but if he could get to a library or something then paypal might work for him in the long run once it is set up. He can also set up a premiere business account and within a couple weeks he could have access to a debit card and access his money for help faster....I am sure through talks we will get something going for him....

Ed,

I would like to help too. I have to go back to Slidell to clear out my apartment, but don't know exactly when it will be. The building management have asked us to do this ASAP so they can start to renovate and fix the water damages. Apparently my stuff is all there, but I still don't know the condition of it.

Where is Dwayne located? I do have a Paypal Merchant account and could collect money and pass him a check, but if he is located far from NO it will be difficult. Options are that I can leave a check it with someone local, but again, if he can't get around to pick it up it won't help.

JT's option of the PayPal account is probably the best. This will be a long term effort and having the paypal account could mean we could send easily at future times.
