Make Donations Carefully
With every disaster come scams - the efforts of a few bad-spirited folks to take advantage of the generous spirits of others. A number of articles warn about making donations to Haiti relief efforts carefully. A good article appeared today in the Chicago Tribune and lists a number of reminders. A blog called Good Intentions Are Not Enough (An honest conversation about the impact of aid) provides excellent resources - advice and guidelines on giving from aid workers and links to a variety of sources of information.

Thank you for your advice..
Predatory thinking in certain circles destroy so much.
We are asking for donations also - not for Haiti though, but all this scam make it more difficult.
Its not easy to find sponsors and people wanting to donate - and we need people to trust charities - and to put action behind all the good intentions.
