  • Haiti Donation Opportunities - PLEASE post any links you have !!

    If you are so inclined, please visit this site. They are matching contributions made to the American Red Cross.

    http://dealnews.com/features/dealnew...ef/343351.html

    Thank you for looking.


    This is a note from the Bosshole: Please feel free to post links to any and all possible websites for raising money for the people of Haiti. The initial reponse of rescue personnel is just a start for what will be needed in Haiti. They will also require longer term funding. Please also be careful to use known quantities for donations. There are many in Haiti who are corrupt, and who will take contributions which were intended to go to people in need.

    dawgfan - THANK YOU for starting this thread. I hope you are ok with modifying the thread title. :)

    In Canada the federal government will match $ for $ donations to the Canadian Red Cross Haitian fund. Also, and I missed this myself, Ing Direct will match donations made through your ING account. This triples your donation.

      Thanks for allowing the post and the title mod is entirely up to you :). The Red Cross site links donors to a section which checks to see if your employer might match, but mine did not. Yes, please be cautious which organizations you contribute to.

        The Haitians need the help. The execs at Red Cross don't. Please donate to the cause but please research first to make sure your donation gets where it should, the Haitians....so please do your research first, then donate!

              I want to know how much of my dollar gets to the intended cause. In the case of the American Red Cross it's 90 cents of every dollar, a pretty good proportion. To each his own as long as the help gets there.

                If the president of the red cross is able to delivery .90 on the dollar then that is deserving of generous compensation.

                    What Stereodude said...asked....

                    If you want some suggestions here are two I support and strongly recommend:

                    Brother's Brother Foundation

                    Doctors without Borders.

                    The key is to find one you believe in and support it.
