AdSense contacting publishers in hurricane hit areas

In addition to switching all PSAs to run Red Cross ads on September 2nd, they have emailed publishers in the hurricane stricken areas to ask if they need any assistance with their account, such as changing mailing addresses or setting up electronic payments.

Hello, We've noticed that your AdSense payment address is located near the area most impacted by Hurricane Katrina. We also know you may have issues more urgent than your AdSense activities right now, so we'd like to offer our help.

If you're having trouble managing your AdSense account in any
way, please let us know. We can assist you with holding your
payments, updating your payment address, switching to electronic
payments, or any other account issues you may have.

Please feel free to reply to this email or contact us at
adsense-support@google.com to let us know if there's anything
else we can do for you.

We offer our deepest sympathy during these difficult times.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team

A classy thing for Google to do by offering assistance for publishers facing difficult times ahead. While I am sure that other affiliate and advertising programs are offering the same kind of assistance, AdSense is the only one I have heard of doing this thus far.
