Don't give money to help the victims of the Haitian earthquake to any old organization. Give it to an organization you know and trust.
Don't just cross your fingers and pray your money is put to good use. Victims of this kind of devastation need more than mere care. They need the expertise that only we can provide.
You don't want an organization that'll be gone in November. Or one who can only hope to help. You want to give your hard earned money to a group that you can rest assured with produce positive results.
Four out of five starving children trapped under mounds of debris in Haiti agree, they'd rather be saved and fed by us. Not those other guys like Oxfam, Partners in Health, or the American Jewish World Service.
No one saves you better.
