Quote of the Day - You can't help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself.
It's not in the forefront of the news like it was two weeks ago, but those in the Gulf Coast haven't forgotten, and many others haven't either. Ross Kodner, who founded HelpKatrinaLawyers.org, reported back today with this news update on MIPTC's previous post on Tammie Holley:
"Craig, I thought I'd let you know the updated status on Tammie. Within 48 hours of her request, we marshaled the HelpKatrinaLawyers.org volunteers and built her a new web presence - this was her immediate concern - to have a rallying point to apprise her clients of her status and to let them know how to contact her. Dale Tincher's team at Consultwebs donated the hosting and design services and nailed this down in one day (http://www.tammieholleylaw.com). Since then other volunteers have been helping her restore her technology capabilities. She's one of about a dozen examples of small firms that have come to us for assistance - our volunteers have been truly magnificent in their willingness to give drop everything and generously offer their time. Special recognition goes to Atlanta consultant David Moon for his 'beyond the call' level of effort to help one particular Mississippi firm restore its practice literally from the ground up."
If you're still looking for a way to plug in, contact Ross at HelpKatrinaLawyers.org, if not just to pitch in, but to give Ross a pat on the back.
