Oklahoma Tornadoes 2013In light of the recent tornado that hit several communities in Oklahoma, it is important to know the best ways to help during any disaster.  To make sure that victims are getting the most out of your donations, we have compiled a list of some tips for smart giving:

  • Donating cash to a recognized disaster relief organization, like the American Red Cross, is the quickest and best way to help those most seriously affected.
  • To find out which resources and products are most essential for the tornado victims, contact a disaster relief organization that is involved in aiding the victims.
  • If you’re interested in donating large amounts of items, work directly with organizations that deal with donating bulk supplies to the victims.
  • Before dropping off donations, call the organization to determine the correct time and location.
  • You can sell your items on eBay Giving Works or another site and donate the proceeds to a disaster relief organization.
