I am pleased to report that Contact Loved Ones, a service to reunite Katrina refugees through telephone and voicemail technology, is up and running as of last night.
We have local numbers available for people to call in Texas and Louisiana and toll-free at 1-866-78-CONTACT. (Please only call in if you are actually trying to locate someone who is missing – we want to preserve our capacity for those who need it most).
This was an incredible flat-out all-volunteer effort which only began on Friday afternoon and today is in operation. It could never have been accomplished without the efforts of many Americans who gave and are giving in unbelievable ways. I have never been prouder to be an American.
