I’m not super anti-Red Cross but having seen what they’ve done in the past, for me, about the only thing I would donate to them would be my blood. I can’t stomach donating that much money to something and not even being assured it will go to where I want it to, and a good part of it goes to pay the head leaders.
So this blog is to mention that you can also donate to the Salvation Army.
Some details from their website: A $100 donation to The Salvation Army will feed a family of four for two
days, provide two cases of drinking water and one household clean-up kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets, and cleaning supplies
And of course being the christian I am (big shock there!) their mission statement really speaks to me: The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its
ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Wish we had one in our town.
I’ve supported this charity/ministry before around christmas time with the Christmas Shoe Box. You might recognize it as Franklin Graham’s organization. (Billy Graham’s son)
Their mission statement:
Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son,
The organization serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
