North Miami False Red Cross Fund Collection: Don’t Trust the Government?

Could the monies end up in the hands of organizations, friends of the city council? This behavior is truly outrageous. It will hurt future collections for other towns.
Despite outcry from donors and concerns from the Red Cross, North Miami officials did not come to a consensus Tuesday on how they will spend more than $116,000 raised for Haiti relief immediately after the January earthquake.
Officials had put the issue on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting to discuss the fate of the funds raised ostensibly to be handed over to the American Red Cross in the days following the disaster.
At the meeting, the council decided to accept proposals from other organizations seeking the donated money to carry out Haiti reconstruction efforts.
