Looking through the list of companies donating to the cause for aide in LA, I noticed some where matching customer donations. Would it make sense to seek these companies out and make a donation through them if you were to make a monatary donation instead of going straight to the red cross? I know a lot of them have a cap: "Lowe's Companies will match in-store customer contributions up to $1 million." link So if I were to donate X amount I could divide it up and seek out as many companies that were matching as possible to spread the money around. Just a thought, have been reading about rescue efforts and the situation down there and can't even think straight anymore. Seems like everything that could have gone wrong has.
