I think we need to give some credit where credit is due.
I think in today's world a major disaster needs both.

When only a small percentage of what you donate to large organizations actually makes it to the intended project, versus small organizations that are usually volunteers with minimal overhead, I know where the true benefit of my dollar gives the most.

Do what makes you feel like you've done something to help, wherever that may be.

I know of at least one of our local electric companies is sending trucks and contractors to help get the power back on in Florida. It's the least we can do considering the help from nationwide we received during the storm fires back in November.

Or you can physically go and miss posting on the Forum for a while.
