In times of crisis and disaster, communities across the world turn inward to embrace those they love and support, while extending their kindness and generosity to those affected. This generosity turns into billions of volunteer hours, trillions of dollars in donations, and hundreds of millions of tons of donated supplies.

These organizations are extraordinarily effective at what they do, giving you the chance to support a cause where your dollar donated (or your hour volunteered) will go furthest.
