  1. Hope de money is not poorly distributed like it was in Haiti.
    Praying hands.

  2. Sister Nancy says:

    I thought the same thing I truly hope the money reaches them. After the Haiti disaster and seeing that the money was not utilized according to plan I have never or will ever give my hard earned money to The Red Cross again. I will leave it like that as there is a whole lot more I can say about that organization

  3. To ONION JUICE:
    That is why WE must stop supporting such and come up with our own methods to assist humanity.
    Money is not a great idea to help Bahamas!!
    Nope!!
    B.I.U., Seventh Day Adventist are better options!!!

  4. Hurricane Relief says:

    How much of that does Red Cross keep, I wonder?

    I don’t think they’ll get it if the Red Cross has to distribute it.
