Houston floods: Don’t waste resources on the dishonest (at best) Red Cross. Here are better ways to help
Do your research before donating to any charity
This weekend, at least five were killed and dozens injured after Hurricane Harvey smashed into parts of Houston region with brutal winds and 24 inches of rain. As The Atlantic explains, in the disaster that has been compared to Katrina and Sandy, “the heaviest cost of Harvey’s destruction is likely going to be borne by the most vulnerable communities in its path”—older, disabled, and of color.
In an effort to help out, many will turn to the most visible name for relief efforts: The Red Cross.
