On Charities, donations, timing and more…

If you look online to find topics discussing donating to those affected by disasters, there is a hefty collection of information. This excellent article, from Vox, offers numerous good points to consider all in one place. Included: the capacity (or not) of small charities to manage large amounts of donations, fake charities, timing of giving donations, how donated funds are used most effectively- even information from the perspective of doing research to find out how effective donations are, after the fact. It is a well written article of what to consider in order to help the most – in both response and recovery. Well worth the read.
