Hurricane Ivan also did a tremendous amount of damage and destruction to the Gulf Shores, Alabama area. No offense to Mindseye for his "Granada" post, but charity begins at home. The U.S. is always sending aid to foreign countries in times of flooding, earthquakes, typhoons, whatever. How many countries send us financial aid? If you would like to send a donation - no matter how small or large, send checks to: Hurricane Ivan Relief Fund P.O.Box 1359 Gulf Shores, AL 36547 This is a legitimate request and address. Trust me.
