How sad.... I will contribute, but I REFUSE to give to the Red Cross...
Ever since 9/11,They (the Red Cross) took our money & distributed it how THEY saw fit...They did the same with the Hurricane Katrina victims...
ALL of our contributions DID NOT GO TO the victims...

I read an article that stated, though the Red Cross collected millions upon millions of dollars, the money will be distruted according to THEIR will....If not in THEIR own pockets...

You're an idiot. Obviously you've never been through a fire. Otherwise, you wouldn't be saying stupid, hateful things like this. Thank goodness everyone got out safely.

You are sorry ass. I can only hope this never happens to anyone in your family, not you but your family. What a life you must have.
