The Red Cross and Katrina Spending

The New York Times has run an article questioning how much of the donations received by the Red Cross will actually be spent on Katrina relief and/or rebuilding.

There's no question the Red Cross does some great work, but enough questions were raised about Red Cross spending after 9/11 that I decided I'd be more comfortable donating to organizations with lower overhead. I particularly admire Samaritan's Purse, headed by Franklin Graham. The Salvation Army is another terrific option.

Laura,

Like your blog. My wife (after teaching in the public schools for ten years) also homeschools one of our two children. The other is in private school.

Good to see a conservative in California. We're about 48% conservative here in Michigan -- a "swing state" at times.

My blog is www.seasonedwithsaltsyndicate.blogspot.com

There are a few conservatives left in California, especially here in Orange County :). It's always great to hear from a fellow homeschooler.

Thanks much for stopping by -- I'll be sure to check out your blog.
