~tangerine~ Posted January 20, 2010 Share Posted January 20, 2010 Hello: I am concerned that if I give money the supplies it will buy may not get to the people in need..there's alot of press about the fact that supplies are not arriving to people in need... I will have to do more research before I make a donation to the organization/orphanage I have chosen to help Juliet Hopefully supplies will be distributed soon. These people will be needing food/water/supplies for many months to come. I made a donation the easiest way possible, via text. The American Red Cross or Unicef are very safe organizations to donate to. For just one penny (i think most people can afford that) a tablet can be added to water to make it drinkable. Proof that any amount of money will HELP. The relief tents are another good way to donate your money. CNN reported on money donated to Unicef going towards tents among the other supplies being provided. I think the best idea (and one that many won't approve of) is to get the people who are healthy enough to travel (and willing to leave) out of that country. Seems the most humane thing to do. My friend Marie finally contacted family in Haiti. Two young cousins died in school, her Uncle and the rest of the family residing there are alive and in good condition (as of Saturday). Just talking to her is so heartbreaking.
