Donate To the Established

Right now, there are many lists cropping up of where to send relief goods and donations for the Habagat 2012 victims. However, it is also the perfect time for some mercenaries to take advantage of the situation.

Personally, I would bring my goods and money to the established enterprises, like schools (all De La Salle schools in Manila, Ateneo, UP), hospitals and organizations (Red Cross, ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya, etc). Of course, donation drives may also be undertaken by villages and other groups... just don't deposit money in accounts you don't know.

Another thing why I perfer established groups is that they already have a network of contacts, and faster determine which supplies are required (be it extra medical computer  equipment at UST Hospital, or clothes/food/medicine in the different evacuation shelters.

I know we all want to help, but let's not waste our help to those who are just exploiting the hardships of our fellowmen. Here is a list that one can fairly trust for donations and volunteer work.
