President George W. Bush named his two immediate predecessors on Monday to appeal for private donations for tsunami disaster relief Story dated 03 January 2005
In a way, it's incredibly politically astute of Bush to employ Clinton to raise private aid for tsunami victims. Since Bill Clinton is a holy figure to the political left, they will not be able to criticize a program that he has a part in. However, that being said, I cannot condone using such a despicable man to raise money for charity -- it gives him extra brownie points that he doesn't deserve and will only divert people's attention from bad things that he's done.
Now let me say that I support the idea of private charity 100%. I find state charity distasteful since it is paid out of money taken from others by force. You should never donate to a U.N. charity. For one, the U.N. is anti-U.S., and for another, the U.N. has a history of corruption where charity funds are concerned. If you would like to donate to help the victims of the tsunami, I can recommend two organizations: The first is AmeriCares, which spends 99% of its funds on actual relief activities, 0.4% on administrative expenses and only 0.6% on fundraising expenses. As Neal Boortz says, "No government can match that level of efficiency." The second is the International Mission Board, to whose disaster releif fund Southern Baptists and other Christians can send financial gifts for aid. Send gifts designated "Asia Earthquake Disaster Relief" to the International Mission Board, P.O. Box 6767, Richmond, Va., 23230. Or give online at their web site. _____________________________________________
