This went around a while back and I have seen it shared again a few times today. I guess it’s making the rounds again in light of Hurricane Harvey.
Please, please don’t screen grab this and start sharing before you read what I have to say. I’ve purposely kept it small so it’s not too legible here.
Do you know who originally came up with this meme? Do you know how old it is? Do you know anything at all about its accuracy? If not, then it may not be the best source of information out there for which charities are the best.
Here is some info on this meme from Snopes.
And here is a link from the Federal Trade Commission about how to check into a charity that might be more helpful than a random meme on Facebook.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for somewhere to donate, here’s a link from Texas Monthly about ways you can help after Hurricane Harvey.
