Benjamin Karp — a New Hampshire high school senior with close ties to New Orleans — is selling blue "Children of New Orleans" wrist bracelets to raise money to buy toys, video games and play equipment for waiting areas and patient rooms in the Tulane Hospital for Children and the Pediatric Emergency Department. Karp says he came up with the idea as a way to help New Orleans children in a post-Katrina world where many families and institutions are still recovering from the storm and rebuilding. The bracelets cost $2 each and are available for purchase at the hospital as well as in shops throughout the city. Visit for a list of retailers.
