So, who are you guys donating to?
Here’s my thing. I gave to Doctors Without Borders, even though I don’t agree with some of their politics, because doctors and medicine seem to be the biggest need right now.
But I want to give to other charities too, and I don’t know who. I won’t give to the Red Cross because they can’t seem to stay out of trouble. After every big tragedy like this, there always seems to be a huge scandal about embezzling and money going to the wrong locations. Besides, they only have 3 stars at Charity Navigator.
I normally give to AJWS, but their website says that donations will go to charities on the island that they’ve already established relationships with, in calmer times. I don’t see how that could possibly work. What use is money in Haiti, right now? They can’t buy medicine or food or even water, because there simply isn’t any to be had. They might as well burn it to boil contaminated water.
So what good, reputable charity is successfully flying/shipping stuff in? I’m at a loss.
