An Outpouring of Generosity

The tragic earthquake in Haiti has touched the hearts of people around the world, prompting donations of several hundred million dollars so far.

Have you contributed to the relief efforts in Haiti?  My family is doing so through a contribution to an organization that our church has partnered with: Water Missions International.  There are many excellent charitable organizations working to help relieve suffering among the Haitian people.  However, many scam artists are also hard at work trying to take advantage of the situation.

Charity Navigator has some helpful advice about sorting out which organizations to support along with a searchable database of non-profits that are analyzed and rated based on their efficiency at putting contributions to work.

If you have contributed to the relief efforts in Haiti, which organization did you support and why?

    I support my church’s denominational relief organizations, Mennonite Central Committee and Mennonite Disaster Relief because they are both highly efficient in utilizing incoming dollars to meet needs of those for whom the dollars are intended. I do not support them because of denominational preference. I support them because they do the job.
