I think JeffComedy over at What The Hell? made some mention of this. Now comes a reminder from one of the manufacturers of HO model train cars I buy on occasion, Athearn Trains. There is a good reason to plan on skipping dinner preparations on October 5 and going out to eat at participating restaurants. It's called “Dine for America: An restaurant industry benefit for Hurricane Katrina relief.” The participating restaurants donate a portion of earnings (e.g. 100% of profits at Chili's!, $1.00 per dessert at UNO's, etc.) to the American Red Cross' Katrina Disaster Relief Fund. Or, you could make a donation directly. But going out to dinner is more fun than simply writing a check and you don't have to do dishes afterwards!
