    Grand Union: "Curiously though I can't find records of their accounts or the compensation taken by their leaders on-line. One should be very wary about giving anything to any organization that does not make their records public."

    Again, the NC Baptist Men and the churches mentioned are just that......a MINISTRY, not an organization; and their mission is Christ-given out of their love for Him and all peoples. Note the words "to help others, including food, fuel, water and even a laundry facility. In addition to helping with damaged homes, it has provided more than 250,000 meals to hurricane victims throughout New Jersey and New York." Maybe you also overlooked the words "volunteer" and "volunteers". I encourage you to read the article again, slowly, so as to get the message; as the message is not "money", "compensation", "payment", etc.

    "Anyone wishing to help those in the Northeast affected by Sandy can rest assured that the NC Baptist Men apply 100% of all donations to helping others. They are all volunteers and this organization is absolutely trustworthy with any funds you send them. I hope you will give today. Their website is secure."

    "Wouldn't it be nice if we sent all of the yankees in Cary back to NJ?"

    Wouldn't it be nice to send all the "old south" folks in NC to Mississippi?

    You have some serious issues. This is an article about people helping people and somehow you find something negative in it. Go get some help.
