Charity of the Month: International Red Cross

There had been a lot of talk in the news about refugees from around the world and what the United States should do regarding them.

Some say we have a moral responsibility to bring them into our country.  Others say that unfettered immigration poses a threat to national security.  There are good arguments on both sides.

But regardless what side of the issue you find yourself, all of us have an obligation to look out for the least ones in the world.

The very least that we can do is help out with the basic necessities of life.  The International Red Cross is (as far as my research goes) a very reputable organization that uses its funds well to take care of food, shelter, and medicine for those claiming refugee status.

The question of immigration is a political question that I do not wish to engage in on this blog.  But the question of how to help our fellow man is something we must always ask ourselves.

As always, I will never ask anything of you that I am not willing to do myself.
