IMPORTANT NOTE

While giving to hurricane victims is highly encouraged be sure to thoroughly check out the group you're considering a donation to especially if they approach you and especially if they pitch you by way of e-mail.  We've already had reports of some unscrupulous characters collecting money to help their own bank accounts and not the people who need the assistance.
