KIDS CAN HELP TOO
Everybody can pitch in with rescue-and-relief efforts. Ryan Paeglow, a 7-year-old at Orlando's Shenandoah Elementary, brought a jar to class (with a note from Mom) explaining that he wanted to collect money to replace fire equipment damaged in the disaster; the next day, the jar was full. Others simply gather loose change and send it to the Red Cross. Children can also express their opinions by writing to President Bush, The White House, Washington, D.C. 20500.
