Donate to the Salvation Army if you can't think of anywhere else to donate.

"A $100 donation will feed a family of four for two days, provide 2 cases of drinking water and one household clean-up kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets, and cleaning supplies."


Formula and breast milk consumption as late as 24 months is not unheard of, each child is different, and you don't know the nutritional and digestive needs of the child.

Presumably the formula was a supplement. Mixed with that rice powder, it's not a bad way to go in such a situation.

And no doubt healthier than the drinking water.

Far be it from me to criticize anothers choices in child rearing, but why is an 18 month old still being fed formula? My daughter quit breast feeding (OK, her mom forced her off) at right around 12, maybe 13 months. She's now 17 months, and pretty much eats normal food like a toddler should. If the baby was 8 months I could certianly see the need for formula (or breast milk - which has the advantage of being readilly available if mom has enough food for herself).

That said, I will certainly be looking into how my family can best help those in need. Whether that be donating money, blood, or old clothes we'll get something on the way to help out.


"More than 10,000 people remained stranded in the Louisiana Superdome, which was without power and surrounded by three to four feet of water...A woman with an 18-month-old baby said her last bottle of baby formula was nearly empty."

Maybe it is because of my recent pregnancy and the birth of our third child, but this really got to me. The idea of that child possibly starving to death waiting on formula in the Superdome chokes me up. We need to donate everything, those poor individuals are left with nothing. Wow.
