Why I Don't Recommend the Red Cross for Disaster Relief

The Red Cross is not Kathleen's or my preferred charity when a major weather disaster occurs. The reason is that they take disaster donations and put them into their operating pot and may or may not spend the money on the disaster for which the money was donated. There have been a number of scandals with regard to this practice, including during Hurricane Sandy.

We prefer the Salvation Army's Disaster Relief Service
