I was thinking that it would be nice if we could find one or two families directly affected by Sandy and give to them, without the help of charity agency brokerage. This is how I have practiced donations for years now.
Unlike Joplin, the aftermath of Katrina, and Greensburg, I am not in a position to find that family for myself. So I need some help finding a family to give to. Anyone got any ideas on how I can help in the manner I find to be the most rewarding to both recipient and donor. Anyone here have ideas on how I may do that?
I also thought it might be nice of the blog here adopted a family or two and we just gave to them directly, without charity brokerage, their odd judgement calls and their high administrative costs.
What are your thoughts on this?
Following 9-11, the Red Cross, with all the heartfelt giving that come from the people of this country, decided to stop helping the families and persons directly affected by that terrible day, choosing instead to keep their own coffers full. Or At least that is how I saw it.
