    Are there any legitimate groups out there that will match a donation, or something similar? I want the most bang for the buck.

    Also, I want to make sure that at least "most" of my donation goes directly to helping Haitians in need instead of a lot of it going to "overhead" to process the donation.

    If not, then I'll just go through the Red Cross.

    Thanks!

    I donate to love a child and have for years. The heads of the foundation themselves are actually down there in the thick of things. A good place to check a charity out is http://www.charitynavigator.org/. They give you the stats on any charity.

    That's right, charity begins at home.

    Millions of our future tax dollars are going to be spent re-building Haiti
    into a Socialist paradise, modeled after America.

    here we go again

    the OP is trying to know WHERE TO DONATE TO HAITI, not asking what others think where he can donate or to who.

    or so I read...

    You're a member of the Church right? What's your objection to the Humanitarian Services Emergency Response?
