A couple of weeks ago, when I first mentioned Hurricane Katrina, it was barely a category 1 storm touching the southern tip of Florida. It is amazing to me that the storm grew so much as to become a category 4/5 hurricane, and my heart goes out to all the people who were affected by the storm.

Since the primary Gaucho Software product is a weather application, it only seems appropriate for the company to help in a time like this, so Gaucho Software will donate 25% of all sales during the month of September to the American Red Cross. As many people know, the Red Cross is pretty much at the forefront of the hurricane relief efforts, and I can’t think of a better organization to make a donation to.

I would also like to encourage others to make donations if they haven’t already. It sounds like many Americans (and others worldwide) are already banding together to help, which is great, but there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done.
