According to the American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP), a leading charity watchdog, as well as many other sources I have read, the best way to help the tsunami victims is to give money, not goods. As crafters, our first thought of helping often turns to what we can do with our hands. We give our hearts to others through our crafts. But it takes too much time and money to ship donated items overseas, and they need help right now. Both the AIP as well as Give.org have lists of reputable charities to which you can donate. Every donation counts, no matter how small.
