Double Your Donation: Another reason to adore NYT BSL author Nora Roberts; she's pledged to match donations made to Habitat for Humanity through September 20th.

Free Virtual Library:, which provides members with the means to catalog their personal libraries online (200 books for free, as many as you like for a $10 lifetime membership) is offering free paid account upgrades to anyone who donates $50 or more to the Red Cross.

Old-Fashioned Caring: Victorian Trading Company's owners Melissa and Randy Rolston, who regularly donate 10% of their net profits to worthy causes, are at it again with this offer: "We will donate 10% of net profits received from all Internet orders to Hurricane Katrina victims through September."*

If you know of any donation matching or special offers for Katrina relief supporters, please post them in comments.

*VTC sells my all-time favorite journals; they're big, beautifully covered, spiral-bound and have lovely ecru-colored pages that are lined on one side and blank on the other. Just so happens that they're on sale, you can get a pair of them for $6.99
