Why donating money, not goods, is essential to remote disaster operations

http://blogs.redcross.org.uk/emergencies/2010/01/help-not-hinder-haiti/ is an incredibly excellent explanation of why small penny-parcel lots of donated goods hinder, not help, relief efforts. If you have anything less than a semi-trailer full to donate, please consider donating it to a local charity where it can do the most good, instead of trying to send it overseas. There's even more good reasons why, but the blogger certainly provides enough for one day's thought.
