In no way do I hope to sound overly pious or anything. Bottom line was I wanted to give $50 to somebody related to the Katrina tragedy. I heard about Charity Navigator
on the radio this morning and ended up going to Direct Relief International
because they dedicate such a huge portion of their cash to program expenses. Also, they're focusing on diabetics, which is undoubtedly a nasty issue for the impoverished of New Orleans. But there are plenty of good organizations on which to drop the quid.
