So many people already need help, and some of us are in the position to offer that help. I am personally not recommending any of the following groups. I do not know their charity or non-profit status. What I have done is taken the original poster into account and I’ve gone to the website to see that it appears legitimate. Use your own judgment, and do not give more than you can afford.
I will continue to add as new ones come to my attention.
