The Wrong Donations – Some Tough Words on Disaster Relief

I have heard of MANY places starting collections of money or supplies or whatever to help in Texas…

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST (from one of the Texans working the disaster).

If you want to give money, the UMCOR (United Methodist Committee of Relief) turns around 100% of your donation and it gets to those in need in Texas. (Many groups take a percentage out first for their administrative fees… sometimes leaving little for the victims of the disasters).

Thanks!
