Dear kind, generous folks.

Here's how you give to victims and the needy.

Get their name and address. Mail them a check.

Organized charities are mostly about expenses for the organization. That means they're f*cking vultures cutting a hole in the cup you just put a quarter in. Avoid them.

Deathfrogg: Disaster capitalism at its finest. I wonder how much was donated to the RNC?

Probably as much as the DNC saved using non-union labor in a right to work state.

You're a fool if you give to charities, especially ones that you've never heard off. The richest person I know is the founder of a local charity that "helps" the poor, there are basically no rules on expenditures so pretty much everything they take in goes towards "business expenses" and "administrative services".

Disaster politics at its finest. Never let a good tragedy go to waste when you could be sticking it to the other team!

I'm just gonna say it - I think it's weird to give and/or receive crazy terrorist aftermath contributions. I mean a single car accident can wipe out an entire family and leave the remaining clan destitute. happens nearly every day. I can totally see contributing to drought or famine or cholera or whatever when you can actually help some people stay alive. I just don't see how the hell you'd ever divide this money up between the rich and poor, those with life insurance and without, the employed and unemployed, those who lost three people vs someone only injured, a wife vs a cousin or a sister or a friend. here's what I think - the next time a plane crashes into a building or a nut shoots up the post office, just take that money and give it to the food bank.

super_grass: Most A relatively small numberof the victims are dead, they won't miss the money that much.

58 wounded > 12 dead

What mismanagement? I pocketed huge chunks of the money while distributing token amounts to various other groups just like originally planned. Don't tell me it was "mismanaged".
