I was listening to a local commercial free 501c3 radio station this morning as I was driving and the radio personality was commenting on the situation in Haiti. He went on to direct listeners to donate to the red cross and he went to give the number, paused and said he didn't have the number handy. Then he said to SEND YOUR FUNDS TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT, that they would get it into the hand of the needy and provided a number to call. I shit you not.
Oh yeah almost forgot, it get's better. Immediately after this solicitation he was talking about a missing puppy.
