My wife works for a large US athletic shoe manufacturer, and the management announced that donations to the US Red Cross for Haitian relief would be matched. She asked if our (rather sizable) donation to the Salvation Army's Haiti Relief Fund would be matched if she brought in a receipt from the SA. The answer was no. That sickens me. The Red Cross has so much staff, facilities, and overhead that they will bleed these donations, while the SA tries to operate on a shoestring, and emphasizes local interactivity wherever they operate. PLEASE give your donations to the SA instead of the Red Cross.
