Oklahoma Thunder star Kevin Durant gave $1 million to the American Red Cross for the relief of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado victims. The Red Cross does great work in the immediate aftermath of natural disaster, but there are other organizations that provide vital follow-ups long after CNN and other media outlets have moved on to other stories.
Catholic Charities, for example, work with families over the long-haul to rebuild their lives. Such assistance can take many forms, such as help with finding new housing, replacing furniture and other household items, and mental health counseling. The best way to help organizations like Catholic Charities is not to send things but to offer financial assistance.
