Amidst much controversy the American Redcross has received in regards to their legitimacy, we understand that many of you are finding yourselves not wanting to contribute to their organization. Part of the problem comes from the American Redcross’ track record when it comes to disasters, it really isn’t great and has proven itself unequal to the task of massive disasters.
With the destruction left behind after Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, which have left many parts of Cuba, several islands and almost all of Puerto Rico in shambles, friends and family to those on the islands are having a hard time finding where to donate and help assist in the hurricane relief. Well, Revolution has you covered.
