1.  I saw on the news that the Salvation Army gives much more to the families in need than the Red Cross which has a lot of paid employees and red tape and beaurocrats (sp?) and takes a lot off the top of the donations for administration. The Red Cross also puts all the donations in one big fund so you don't know if your donation even helps Oklahomans or someone in "fill in the blank". I like to donate through a church in the area because they know the local people and their needs and I trust them more than a big group where you wonder if the money even makes it down to those in need. Since I live in Massachusetts, our local churches always find a "sister" church in the devastated areas to send our donations, clothing, food, furniture to. I trust that the most, we even have volunteers who will drive there and deliver (when they are allowed by the local government, of course).

2.  Give to local churches, Oklahoma Baptist Men have a rescue ministry. All money will go to help those in need.

3.   My company is gathering things to bring out there this weekend.  
I was told they need water, diapers, paper towels, toiletries, and other disaster-need items

4.   MercuryOne.org They give 100% of your donation to the cause. NO Administrative Fees are taken.

MercuryOne.org is already distributing stuff...boots on the ground. Your entire donation if earmarked for Oklahoma go ONLY for that and NOTHING taken out for administration or other ways.   Mercury One was founded by Glenn Beck and The Blaze. They started about 2 years ago. Go to MercuryOne.org. I can't say enough Good things about Mercury One. I trust my donations Will go to the cause, at 100%.

5.  Salvation Army and Samaratin's Purse before Red Cross!
