Some artists have been donating artwork to charity auctions or selling art and giving funds to various Katrina Disaster relief charities.
The image hosting site Flickr has a Katrina Relief auction page with a variety of works for sale, including a photographic print of Coloured smoke which i think is outstanding.
Some Washington DC art bloggers are auctioning some beautiful artwork
Art for Katrina has a selection of donated artwork that will be sold on ebay . Info about donating artwork here
MissionFish has a huge page of listings on ebay with all sorts of items [books, bags , jewellery, clothes and everything] as well as artworks being sold for Hurricane Katrina Relief charities. MissionFish guarantees that the money gets to the registered charity or non-profit organisation.
Kards for Katrina Relief are collecting original cards donated by calligraphers, collage artists and greetings card artists and other artists around the world during the month of September. They are then selling raffle tickets at $5.00 each for a chance to win a packet of 5 original cards.
100 percent of the proceeds are going to America's Second Harvest

I will be sending a batch of original cards to the Kards for Katrina relief raffle this week . I hope all of these initiatives mean lots of money for the disaster relief fund.
