Forever in Our Hearts

Dear Friend: "Thank You" doesn't seem quite enough to communicate how grateful we are for you. The L9WHA community truly honored Linda Jackson on GiveNOLA Day last week, giving twice as much as ever before. To show your love for Linda, you donated $14,426. Because you shared GiveNOLA Day with us, we thought you might like to know some details. Most importantly, 98 people individually donated $8,426!! Fifty-seven are people we have come to count on for support and 41 are new members of our family. Because of those gifts, we also received $2,500 from our generous matching donors. On top of that, an additional $3,500 came from employer matching donations. Your gifts will honor Linda for years t

Thank you!

Our neighborhood has lost another great advocate and friend. - Laura Paul, Executive Director, lowernine.org Dear Friend, In the past week, love for Linda and the Lower 9th Ward has overflowed. She would have been so grateful to all of you. She would have celebrated your generosity, as she did last year at Urban South with Andy Kopplin, President and CEO of the Greater New Orleans Foundation. While our neighborhood has lost a great leader, we know we don't go forward alone. In a few days, we will share with you the results of our GiveNOLA campaign.

She was always talking about ways we could bring in more money so we could do more good for her beloved community. She knew people cared about the people of the Lower 9th Ward, if we could just reach them.

A Reverend's Letter for His Friend

As the L9WHA mourns the passing of our leader, we also stand with all those who are protesting the murder of George Floyd and all those who work every day for justice for African Americans, as Linda did. Neighborhood leaders with plaque honoring those who died after the levee breaches and those, like Linda, who rebuilt the Lower 9th Ward. Photo by Darryl Malek-Wiley I remember that day well. Linda was 'standing in the back' just like always. I walked to her, took her hand and brought her before the camera. . . . Linda even sort of smiled for the camera. - Sandy Rosenthal, Founder of Levees.org (in pink shirt, to left of Linda) Rev. Willie L. Calhoun, Jr. (bottom left) remembers his good fri

GiveNOLA Campaign Honors Linda

She saw wrong being done to residents in the Lower Ninth Ward and went about making it right. - Cynthia Guillemet With the loss of our founder and guiding light, Linda Jackson, we have decided to dedicate GiveNOLA Day to her. When Linda founded the L9WHA six months after the levees broke, she was starting from scratch. She had no office or staff, no money, and no experience of government disaster programs. So she handed her daughter a stack of papers and told her to start calling scattered residents to see if they were coming home. Now she has called us to dive in like that again.
