    TOM JOYNER, BLACKAMERICAWEB.COM ESTABLISH RELIEF FUND FOR FAMILIES, FRIENDS ASSISTING HURRICANE KATRINA VICTIMS

    Dallas, TX (BlackNews.com) - Tom Joyner, the top ranked nationally syndicated radio personality and entrepreneur, announced today the creation of the BlackAmericaWeb.com Relief Fund. The organization, formed in association with his online community BlackAmericaWeb.com, The Tom Joyner Morning Show, and parent company REACH Media, will assist people who are helping those displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

    "Hurricane Katrina hit the heart and soul of Black America, says Joyner, whose four-hour, drive-time radio show is aired on 115 markets reaching 8 million listeners. This is our Tsunami and we want to take care of those people who now may have family or friends who are going to be in their homes for an extended period of time. We know its hard and we want to make it a little easier on everybody."

    The BlackAmericaWeb.com Relief Fund will accept donations to provide relief in the form of gift cards to support families who are housing those displaced by Hurricane Katrina. The Fund will support individual families who have opened their homes to displaced families and loved ones to supplement their households as relief efforts continue. Relief assistance will be given directly to the families who need assistance.

    If you want to give money it's better to give it here or to Destee.com than to the Red Cross.

    I also heard on the news that there are a lot of HBCU students that won't have a college to go to when this is over. Give some money to the United Negro College Fund as they will help both in providing for these people's education and rebuilding the HBCUs.
