    "It's been a completely unbelieveable year of disasters. Direct Relief is one of the few NGOs that have been on top of things. Their efforts in Syria following Douma have been bar none."

    "GlobalGiving is a unique way to give to charities after a natural disaster. It allows you to skip the sometimes corrupt middle man of the larger charities, and give more directly to those who need it. There is a Mexican earthquake donation fund that has already raised hundreds of thousands!"

    "International Community Foundation is one of my favorite foundations to support especially after the storms and earthquakes and how much damage was left. ICF restored my faith in humans as I watched the news and seen them constantly helping and continue helping this day. I donated $300 to the fund to help my niece win a contest for raising the most money, I'm so glad she won and that shes a supporter!"

    "The Red Cross has come under scrutiny lately for misusing and depending on who you ask, wasting funds, but in South and Central America, they're about as trustworthy as they come. There simply aren't any other organizations with the experience, organization, and resources to handle what they do."

    "I have no problem with World Vision but when I see a website or commercial that asks one to sponsor a child, I get a weird feeling. I have close connections in Spring, TX that was hit hard by Harvey, and remember reading on their FB site that people ought not to trust any charities begging for money to help hurricane victims. They said to help within your community so that we know where the money goes. That is what I do. I help within my community."

    "I've used GoFundMe a few times for donating to people and groups. While it's a great page, I do think they acquire too much in fees from the person/group for payment of their services. It's definitely a great concept but I believe other providers offer their services free to the person/group (such as CaringBridge)"

I think it's very important for us to help our neighbors to the south, so I like that OXFAM is helping with situations that arise in Mexico. Hopefully by coming together we can help alleviate things such as poverty and inequality. "

    "I was really impressed by the premise of the product. I was a bit disappointed by the implementation. AS soon as I navigated to the site I had a hard time finding a search filed. In addition, the natural disaster I was looking for was not on the menu. I really like the feature where I can add information about a person I feel someone else may be looking for. The User Interface was not the best. "
