About Plan USA:

      @ One of The Guys, this is one of the things that I can do. T.E.A.M – together everyone achieve more! I do believe that we can achieve much more if we band together.

    So good of you to post about this. In my foundation work, one of the things I’ve learned is a high magnitude natural disaster always attracts an outpouring of support in the beginning. But what happens is this kind of support is usually one-time and based on emotion. Once the novelty wears off, the funds dry up with a lot of resources still needed for long-term rebuilding. It’s easy to miss the bigger picture of long-term sustainability. Most people who act charitably only give once instead of monthly for a year, which would be the preferable way to contribute. So, something like this which comes a couple of months later is a really awesome thing to do. Thank you.

      @ Tess, thank you and I second you on the addition, “NEVER!”

      @ Belinda, you are right; often time it happened to be a one off thing. What they would need is a longer term support which can see them through the rebuilding process. I believe many would be willing to do this if they are aware of the benefit of long term support. In fact I believe that some are already doing it and contributing on a monthly period. And I also believe that for some, that one-time giving might be what they were able to do or doing what was beyond their capability to fork out something for the people; whatever amount that they managed to squeeze out, may be a small sum that they needed for themselves. These people are the one who I admire most, who give more than they are able to.

      @ Meleah, that would be great and I believe it definitely benefit the people. No small act is too small, it will always make a difference. Thank you.
