What they really need right now is time. The response from all of you and hundreds of others was overwhelming - even those who packed up items and took them to NYC! If you need to contact someone regarding this, call or email Lisa Moczynski, American Red Cross NHQ, Development Strategic Analysis and Performance Excellence, (202) 639-3342 in Washington DC, MoczynskiLat_private I cannot express, as just an American Citizen, my thanks to those of you who contributed, especially to those of you not form the USA. It puts SUPPORT back in IT Support! May God Bless you. Chris Ridley www.meyerequipment.com cridleyat_private -=- Chris, Here is the response I just received from Joe. Thanks so much for your generous offer. We will be in touch should the need arise.

Please forgive any delays in responding to you. If you are responding to the request for assistance after the World Trade Center disaster, thank you! The support that we have received from the national I.T. community has been overwhelming. We received over a thousand offers of assistance and equipment in less than twenty-four hours! What we thought would be sent to five or six people has made it from sea to shining sea, awesome is the power of the internet. What we really need MOST at the moment is time... time to sort through what has been offered and to reassess our needs. Please forgive us if we can't respond right away and please don't forward our message at this time. I don't know how else to thank you all for your compassion and generosity but I feel privileged to be part of the I.T. community, a community in every sense of the word. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
