Donation for the Haiti Tragedy

I made one via Oxfam America. These folks know what they're doing in disaster areas and get very high marks when charitable organizations are rated.


Addendum: anonymous and some emailers didn't like Oxfam because of their anti-Israel stance. I did some additional research, and the following organizations are rated the highest by both Charity Navigator and Charity Watch:

Action Against Hunger-USA
American Jewish World Service
Doctors Without Borders, USA
Medical Teams International
Operation USA
Oxfam America

I removed from the list the following organizations due to their very high salaries ($360K plus to their CEOs): CARE, International Rescue Committee, and Save the Children. I also removed the United Methodist Committee on Relief (their motto: "Connecting the Church in Mission". No thanks.)

Oxfam also happens to be extremely anti-Israel.

And who isn't? The Red Cross?

While not a fan of their politics, I can't argue with Oxfam's ability to quickly get aid to countries that need it, and with the dollar efficiency of their organization.

But thank you for mentioning this. I should have done so in the posting.
