BOSTON, May 31 /PRNewswire/ -- A new hurricane season begins, yet tens of thousands of Katrina victims remain without permanent homes. Hundreds of thousands of the nearly one million houses destroyed remain in ruins. Today, this dire need for affordable housing in the Gulf Coast has prompted private citizens to launch a national call to action and fundraising campaign -- Making Change for Katrina (http://makingchangeforkatrina.org). Making Change for Katrina is the nation's first-of-its-kind citizen-driven campaign to collect spare change and transform the idle coins into much-needed housing for families devastated by last season's Gulf Coast hurricanes. Proceeds from Making Change for Katrina go directly to Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization that builds simple, decent housing in partnership with people in need."
