Make It Right: The Saints Come Marching In

The New Orleans Saints not only made it to the Super Bowl XLIV, they took the championship for the first time in its history! In honor of the winning team, the Make It Right Foundation makes it easy for fans to donate to Brad Pitt's efforts to rebuild the city's 9th Ward with new green, storm-resistant, affordable homes for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina. The Saints won 31-17, taking the game from the favored Indianapolis Colts. CBS did right, too, featuring Make it Right on the CBS Evening News and the pre-game coverage, showcasing the progress on its environmentally-sound housing. As half-time performer Roger Daltrey of The Who said, "New Orleans is due a little bit of luck, so I'm going with the Saints." Now Louisiana and the Crescent City have another reason to party at Mardi Gras. Here's how to show your support and celebrate the Big Game win for New Orleans: text "SAINTS" to 25383 to donate $10 to Make It Right.
