So what organizations are doing good work in disaster recovery?
What organizations are doing great work in disaster recovery?

The difference between good and great could just be something as simple as how much money or goods actually gets to those that need it.

We've all heard the stories about "care" packages going to some African country that end up being sidetracked into some dictator's coffer, especially money.  Perhaps that doesn't happen here in the United States (or does it?).  Some organizations seem to have a higher overhead than others, where only a small percentage of the goods or money make their way into the hands of those that really, really need it.

Here is a list of possibilities for your donation.....Just select your favorite and click on their logo.

It's a much easier decision when you can see how each organization is rated.  Those with a 
after their icon have not been rated yet.  Although they may be very legitiment charities, be wary.





Do you know of other "worthy" charities?  Send me a quick e-mail (editor@witherspoonpath.com) and I'll try to get them in as the week goes by.  But remember, they should be checked by https://www.charitynavigator.org.  Also remember, that the earlier you get them in, the longer period of time your neighbors have to donate to them.

Special Disclaimer:  Usually each of the ICONS you see above may have been checked by www.charitynavigator.org, however, this is no way acts as a endorsement by The Chronicle.  Afterall, who checks the checker.  Let the buyer beware and all that stuff.

"SOS" was the third single from Swedish pop group ABBA's self-titled 1975 album, their third for Polar Music and their second for Epic and Atlantic. It was released with "Man in the Middle" as the B-side. Agnetha Fältskog, who sang lead, recorded the song in Swedish on her 1975 solo album Elva kvinnor i ett hus. "SOS" was ABBA's first major worldwide hit since "Waterloo".
