Rebuilding Joplin

I am offering this post in answer to a number of inquiries about helping out financially or otherwise with the aftermath of Joplin’s tornado disaster.

I have posted before about concerns that many charities are inefficient.  The Red Cross was given a rating by AIP last year of A minus, but even it spends $22 to raise $100 (last’s year’s data.)  Now a fund administered directly under Joplin city auspices has been established, and I have every reason to believe that this would be the most efficient way to help.  Here is the link to REBUILD JOPLIN.

To all those who help, my sincere thanks.
