People are urging donations for Harvey relief efforts - just not to the Red Cross

People are urging donations for Harvey relief efforts - just not to the Red Cross | 28 Aug 2017 | People were urging donors [to help Texas] Monday to seek out churches and local organizations, saying, "Please don't donate money to the Red Cross! Houston will never see it." ...Over the weekend, Dan Gillmor, author and professor at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, also advised people on Twitter not to give money to the organization. As The Washington Post's Peter Holley reported last year, a 2015 NPR and ProPublica investigation revealed that the Red Cross had only built six permanent homes in Haiti even though it had collected almost a half-billion dollars in donations. The year before, the news organizations published a report about Red Cross's response to hurricanes Isaac and Sandy.
