Please help the victims of the South Asia Earthquake. skip
As you know, the victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other natural disasters need our help. But Trent Stamp, of Charity Navigator, has advised that we not donate through telemarketers, to avoid their processing fees and maximize our donations.
He has also advised that we watch out for fraudulent e-mails and web sites. (more information following the donation links below)
Don't let an unscrupulous charity take advantage of your goodwill. Find a charity with a proven track record of success at CharityNavigator.org
Money is the greatest need in a natural disaster, because it gives the relief agencies the flexability to buy whatever they need to help the human and animal victims.
If you can afford to donate money, check to see if your employer is offering matching donations, and if so, please donate through them instead of through the following charities, to maximize sorely needed donations.
Please donate as much and as often as you can afford. If your employer isn't and won't be offering matching donations, donate below. But first, please read the following.
Whether or not you can afford to donate your time or money to help the victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita or other natural disasters, as you may already know or can imagine, the other things that they sorely need, some of which those helping them also need, are:
So please give them housing, a paying job, moral support, if you can, whether online or in person, and keep them, and all those who are and will be helping them directly, in your prayers. Oh, and...
Tsunami Relief Update: The U.N. has reported that their tsunami appeal is well funded, but that the world's other emergencies face a huge shortfall (the report). Please donate to other relief efforts that badly need our help.
To minimize your chances of donating at a spoofed site - a fraudulent copy of a legitimate charity's official web site - and becoming the victim of phishing, download and install either SpoofStick or the Netcraft Toolbar, plugins for Internet Explorer and extensions for Firefox that detect phishing sites.
The detectors help you investigate a site as a way to significantly reduce, if not avoid, the chance of having your private data stolen by phishing scams.
Note: If you use both browsers, be sure to install it for both!
