"Nobody wants your old shoes: How not to help in Haiti" was the first article I read. It was a bad one to start out with.
This article while helpful in telling what type of aid is beneficial and not right now at Haiti, carried an angsty tone that I don't think would leave too many readers wondering, "what more can I do to help?" Because of the harsh tone in this blog post I was also very surprised to see it was actually written by a global health professional. He was quick to say that money is the only thing we can contribute as long as we're not trained specifically in healthcare. He also says choose wisely where to contribute your money. But he leaves it at that and does not go on to recommend any worthy organizations and how they are planning to utilize those funds. Only in the many other articles from the Economist and New York Times about the influx of aid, can you gain a better understanding of how you're contributions would alleviate the current suffering.
