Places to give to benefit hurricane victims are listed below.  These are all rated high by Charity Navigator which measures the portion of the donation that reaches the intended recipient.  While many of these charities are faith based, they do not all adhere to Catholic teaching.  For the most part, the charities or relief organizations listed below are currently operating in the areas ravaged by the hurricanes or earthquake and will accept online donations for that specific relief effort.  There are many other niche organizations operating in all areas, so there will be one in your area of greatest concern.
