Unfortunately crisis and emergencies can knock on your door at anytime. When such a tragedy occurs,, it is important to know how to deal with the situation and to know if the charitable donation you made is helping the people in need. So, before you respond to such organizations, double-check to see if you are protecting yourself and your donation.
React with the Right Intentions
Anything you give to needy is your heart-filled gratitude,especially in the wake of the disaster.
