    The media also like to sensationalize some reports.
    Some charities are a lot worse than others.
    But for example if you donate $100 to help in an impoverished country and only $40 makes it to ground level , is that a good or bad outcome for the needy or is it better to not donate any money at all.
    Another example is the logistics involved to get aid to certain areas.
    Getting aid to areas well away from ports or with little infrastructure will have a lot higher cost for transportation

    If you are concerned about the bucket leaking, you can donate blood to the Red Cross. I'm sure a few hundred mL of blood cannot pay for the Director's Mercedes lease payment.
