When disaster hits, it can be difficult to know the best way to help. How can you be sure that your donation will go directly to the people affected?
For almost 30 years, we have recognized the extraordinary acts of heroism from everyday people around the world, people who stick their necks out for the common good.
It just so happens that we know two organizations founded by Giraffe Heroes that are currently active in disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
If you're in Tennessee, consider dropping off an item from RAM USA's list.
If you are looking for a place to donate -- whether you have $10 or $100 -- please consider Americares.
