Here's an opportunity to help rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. Far too many former residents of the area are still displaced and need to return to re-claim their land. This is an opportunity to actually do something to help that historic area.
More than two years after hurricanes Katrina and Rita, some neighborhoods still remain devastated and uninhabited.
