Here we go again. Americans are rushing to pull out their wallets in a frenzy of compassion and altruism. In the process, I wonder how many of them have taken the trouble to determine exactly where their money goes. Probably not very many. I was just about ready to send a couple of hundred bucks to the tsunami relief agencies when someone here (sorry, don't recall who) posted a picture of two men carrying a litter with a dead body on it. Standing behind the litter, facing the camera was an idiot wearing an Osama tee shirt. That gave me pause. I'm not sending so much as a single red cent to any area where support for Bin Laden is predominant or even very substantial. So while I still intend to donate, I'm going to slow down and do some research first to make sure that my money doesn't come back to haunt us. For anyone interested in doing some research on charitable organizations, here is an excellent resource: http://www.give.org/ I'm going to put this on a sticky for a couple of days. Hope you find it useful.
