Where to give Tsunami Relief Donations

I know that many of us will be hoping to make a contribution to the relief work going on in the areas hardest hit by the December 26, 2004 Tsunami in the Indian Ocean so here's just a couple of things to help make sure your money goes where you want it to...
1. Give to proven organizations like my favorite, World Vision because they have a long time proven track record of doing this type of work 'right' and in a fashion that allows people to have self respect and dignity in their times of crisis.
2. You may want to check out some of the watchdog organizations that rate different charitable organizations on how well they leverage the dollars that have already been given.
3. Treat this investment like you're choosing a good mutual fund to invest in -- you want to max the $$ you invest to help people hardest hit by the Tsunami.
4. If World Vision is not your chosen vehicle then certainly hit this link at Fox News to learn about dozens of organizations doing work there that are accepting online contributions.

Hope this helps you invest your donation $$ more wisely so that each dollar does the most possible good.
