As regular readers know the St. Bernard Project is one of my favourite organizations here in NOLA.  When my parents were visiting in September I took them to the 312th Welcome Home Party for Glenda Ceaser. It was catered by top chefs from across the US including President Obama’s own chef, Cris Comerford.  This picture shows Chef Comerford speaking as the Ceasar family looks on.

They have recently launched a Home for the Holidays campaign. Or if you are on Facebook you can see the Facebook event listing here to spread the word.

You can help give the gift of home to 15 deserving families by raising funds for St. Bernard Project’s “Home for the Holidays” campaign. SBP’s goal is to raise $300,000 by January 7 to fund the rebuilding of 15 deserving families’ homes so they can begin making lasting memories together once more.



In other news, the St. Bernard Project was named one of 10 American Groups making a difference by US News.

The article summarizes the work that they do and the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their work.

They even made the cover!!




Finally, the St. Bernard Project is engaged in another vote-getting contest on Facebook. Their last effort with the Pepsi Refresh the Gulf contest resulted in $250K to support their work with the oil spill.

This one is with Entergy and is called “Power to Care”. You can vote twice a month on Facebook. You’ll find St Bernard Project under Louisiana (not New Orleans). They can win $25000!!
