Help Us Help Katrina Victims in Mississippi

Right after Hurricane Katrina hit last year, we were playing in Cambridge OH, and we passed an impromptu hat to raise money for the beginnings of the relief effort. The people in the audience gave $1200 that day, and we handed it to Salvation Army workers who were leaving from the concert to go help.
Although New Orleans got the most media attention in Katrina's aftermath, it wasn't the only place devastated. We played in Pass Christian MS a couple years ago, and the place where we played has been completely destroyed. People are still living in tents and displaced to other states.
Next month, we're going back to Mississippi and playing two concerts for the victims. We can't rebuild their town. We can't really do much, but we CAN bring some hope and SOMETHING else to do. The concerts are free and we encourage folks to make the trip and come see the effects first hand, and take the experience home and help us to not forget.
We're also going to invite our friends around the world to help by buying tickets to this concert online and we're donating all that money to Katrina victims. We've already posted some recent photos of what we're in store for. PLEASE buy a bunch of tickets so we can come with hope and a big bucket of help from the awesome army of ApologetiX ambassadors around the world.
