Gulf Oil Spill - Tips for Giving

Really, I hate to look at the pictures. I'm married to an environmental scientist and I just don't ask him many questions about it or what it means for the delicate ecosystems and millions of people surrounding the Gulf. But this man-made disaster has created real need and I know that the generous people of Kansas City are anxious to do something, anything, about it.

So here are some tips from the BBB's Wise Giving Alliance on how YOU can make a difference. As always, be wary of well-intentioned but inexperienced organizations that pop up in the wake of this tragedy. Look for established organizations with environemental experitise or experience working in Gulf communities.
