It's been two years since an American city was destroyed. The above clip is a teaser of a video podcast series produced and promoted by entertainment icon Quincy Jones and pop guy Usher who have teamed up with Habitat for Humanity in order to urge Americans not to forget the victims of the hurricane.

Think about what happened two years ago and think of a way to help. Editor Tony Pierce drove to New Orleans and interviewed residents - are things any better now? Habitat for Humanity has already been mentioned, but there's also the Red Cross and many other legitimate charities with New Orleans and Gulf Coast-specific projects.
