So, the British Red Cross doesn't have a direct donation screen for Katrina. Instead, it directs you to the US Red Cross.

Except that I'm not prepared to make a charitable donation to anything other than a UK registered charity. Not from misplaced patriotism, but because I am a higher rate taxpayer so an effective donation of £60 by me is worth £100 to the charity. It's not that UK charities can't send money abroad, plenty do.

So, has anyone spotted a UK charity that's taking Katrina donations?
