Just want to give and not want to know the turns and climbs of the system, just be sure to give to a reputable organization, who gets your donation to those who needs it. Some don’t even need and want the recognition as a donor and give anonymously which may be true to many celebrities to avoid backlashes of the other kind (those who have creative minds and make different sense of their actions rather than the true aim of the act). That’s what all charitable acts should ideally be, selfless and uncompromised without question. Sad, that there are people and organizations of the criminal type who prey on the many charities using their names for unspeakable acts victimizing both donor and recipient and benefiting only themselves.
Want to make sizeable donations of cash or kind? Use the above recommended online tools that helps you get the resources to those who need them. Say, you have a materials manufacturing firm who specializes in tents and other temporary housing facilities and furnishings and it just happens to be that Katrina just passed by leaving many homeless or the Tsunami’s that did the same, you can contact the federal aid agencies or the more recognized groups like the Red Cross who can get your surplus inventory to the areas that need them most. Even the air force can get your supplies there for you provided you make the right calls to the right people. Getting it there all by yourself might not be always possible and you may even put yourself at risk so leave most of the initial disaster recovery work to the experts if it is dangerous.
“A helping hand is always needed somewhere by somebody in need, we just have to work together for a better world where we see humans in each and every one of us, regardless of our differences.”
