When disaster strikes, be it the severe illness of a loved one or a large-scale natural disaster, we all want to chip in and help. Sometimes the best and easiest way to do so is to give money to charity.
The unfortunate reality is that running a charity efficiently is hard, and not all philanthropic ventures are created equal. Through mismanagement or outright swindling, sometimes our donations are wasted.
For the worst of the worst, a majority of donations are wasted raising more money.
