Donate To The Salvation Army

by John Hawkins | September 1, 2005 12:28 am

If you’re looking to donate some money to help the victims of hurricane Katrina, may I suggest the Salvation Army[1]?

They’re a well known, reputable charity and they actually hand out 83 cents out of every dollar[2], so you know they’re not frittering away a lot of money on overhead.

So, if you’re looking to help, the Salvation Army[1], is a great place to donate money.

PS: Do keep in mind that they’re swamped with donations right now, so keep in mind it may, understandably, take a little while for the page to load.

*** Update #1 ***: By the way, if you have trouble getting to the Salvation Army page, you may want to try Mercy Corps[3]. They hand out 91 cents out of every dollar[4] donated so again, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck.
