Haiti Earthquake – Charity or Donation

When faced with disaster, most people would be glad to offer a helping hand. Such is the case in Haiti after this earthquake. Many via hard work and self sacrifice or though a charitable donation of funds to a helpingĀ organization.

There are those out there however that aim to take advantage of people in times of need. Some do this through fake organizations pretending to be a charity.

I caution all of you to be sure that charities you are giving your hard earned money to are legit.

I suggest places such as…

American Red Cross

or

Mercy Corps

If you have a specific charity you’d like to donate to, please be sure to check the BBB site to make sure they are legit.

My thanks to all that are able to help in the face of disaster!
