On Giving to Disaster-Relief Victims of Katrina

As in the situation of the tsunami, there are a number of organizations that would gladly accept financial donations to assist in human suffering. However, it is important that the money you give goes directly to the disaster relief areas and not overhead costs. Here are some guidelines for giving to charities according to the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). And here are, in my opinion, the best three organizations to give to (because they already have resources, personnel, and the organizational infrastructure to best handle your money). 1. North American Mission Board (NAMB): to donate, click here. 2. American Red Cross: to donate, click here. 3. Salvation Army: to donate, click here. Money is the least we can give to those who have virtually lost everything save their lives.
