If you’re uncomfortable giving through the Red Cross and other aid agencies, then let me commend to your attention Baptist Global Relief, who can be counted on to deliver aid to the people who need it.

Thanks, this sounds better for us Christians.

What is there to be uncomfortable about with the Red Cross? (To be honest, I don’t really know much about them, other than that they’re said to be a wonderful help.)

news reports in the past made it pretty clear that their executives were making pretty substantial salaries. very substantial indeed. also, they claimed to have ‘fed’ thousands of people during the aftermath of katrina but in fact they simply delivered meals prepared, by and large, by baptist aid agencies without ever mentioning the fact. combined, those two facts make me uncomfortable with suggesting them as worthy of donations.
