Despite all the new high tech ways to donate, from crowdsourcing to charity apps, an oldie might be your best bet at first.
Donations to Red Cross are easiest
The American Red Cross may be the charity your mom and dad gave too, but it's still the go-to charity in times of crisis. It has the staff, trucks, and logistics to get help where it is needed quickly.
It's also very easy to donate to the Red Cross. To contribute $10, you can simply text the word "REDCROSS" to 90999.
You will automatically give $10 to hurricane victims and the charge will be added to your cell phone bill this month.
