Review for Direct Relief, Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first started donating to DRI after the tsunami in Indonesia, because I liked their privacy policy and I liked that they were very clear in how the money would be used (and what they would do if they received too many donations. ) I've given additional funds since then for various disaster relief (Hurricane Katrina, the earthquakes in Pakistan and Haiti, etc.), as well as for my annual CFC Campaign donation. I like helping Direct Relief International as I respect how well they run their organizationi and how much they respect and value their donors.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reading about their work, following their updates, etc.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make their work better known to individual donors. I do see DRI as a great alternative to some of the mega-huge charities who don't have sound privacy policies or targeted donation policies (not that they should bad mouth other charities...)

Role:  Donor & I gave money via CFC and individual donations .
