San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 5, 2005
During the past week, the world has watched and heard about the millions of displaced families from Hurricane Katrina.
While heart wrenching and absolutely horrific conditions continue to exist, many Americans have expressed a strong desire to not only donate money but to help in other ways. There are many web sites around the world that have message boards and ways for people to post information on the crisis but the information can easily get lost in the masses.
As a small ray of hope, Survivor Relief (http://www.survivorrelief.com) has decided to focus on just one specific area and hopes to match potential donors with the survivor's need for shelter. We are assisting individuals that own RV's or Camper/Trailers and would be willing to loan their use as temporary or long term housing to Katrina's victims.
The site has been specifically set up so that it is easy for victims or friends of victims to post or email their needs based on family size, children, pets, etc. There is also a section for donors to list or email their information on RV and trailer specifics. The greatest hope is that the needs are met with the donors and its a win-win for everyone.
Survivor Relief is 100% donated and run on voluntary efforts. In conjunction with V V Designs and Webtrix Designs, it has been set up as a communications tool for people that are in need of housing and good samaritan's that can offer a solution. If people do not feel comfortable using the website, we ask that you please contact other official relief organizations to donate your RV, trailer or camper. The bottom line on this is bringing awareness and helping our fellow neighbors out during a time of need.
Originally the idea was created by a Southern California lady. She contacted Katrina from katrina.com and asked how soon a website could be put up. Katrina had been overwhelmed with relief efforts and media interviews so thus could not take on the design task. She was thrilled when V V Designs contacted her and immediately passed along the information and contact numbers for the lady in Southern California. Jumping into action, V V Designs, had the entire Web site created and functional within 2 hours. As of today, volunteers at V V Designs have registered with the Homeland Security site for housing needs and are also on standby, ready to help with anyone that is posting or contacting the site http://www.survivorrelief.com.
