As Seen on TV: Give Back to Hurricane Victims

Hurricane Ike made landfall earlier this month, with 110 mph winds that obliterated thousands of homes, causing severe damage to the Gulf Coast. ABC News' Charles Gibson sat down for an exclusive joint interview with former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The two, who have partnered on humanitarian efforts in the past, are collaborating on a new disaster relief program to help those affected by hurricanes Gustav and Ike.

The Bush-Clinton Coastal Recovery Fund is a humanitarian relief organization, led by former Bush and Clinton, to rebuild infrastructure and communities along the Gulf Coast. Local governments and community organizations in Texas and Louisiana can apply for grants to rebuild.

Houston Mayor Bill White launched the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to provide immediate relief -- including shelter, interim housing, food and supplies -- to hurricane victims. To donate and help meet unmet needs, visit their Web site.

United Way 2008 Hurricane Recovery Fund will support services that provide mental health care, child care, offer case management and job training among other services for victims. To donate, visit their Web site's "Give Now" section.

Other organizations that are offering relief to hurricane victims, include the American Red Cross, Direct Relief International, and AmeriCares, among many others.
