Due to the devastation that has taken place in Haiti, many people are questioning where their money will go if they pick on of the charities that the media is suggesting on their websites to donate or text too.
The question seems to be”Will my money actually go to help the Haitian people?” or will it be misappropriated.
As recently as Katrina some charities have been corrupt regarding sending payments to the actual victims of these disasters.
But there is a website that gives you all the information about charities. I would advise if you are unsure about who or where to give your MONEY check out this site first.
What is a BBB Accredited Charity?
A BBB accredited charity is an organization that meets all 20 of the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability based on a review of information and materials provided by the organization. There is no charge to the charity for the evaluation completed by the BBB. Charities are not legally required to submit information and materials to the BBB for evaluation.

Charities that meet all 20 of the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability have the option of participating in a charity seal program that enables them to display the Accredited Charity Seal on their website and in their literature.
