‘Tis the season of giving – and taking. So listen to the Better Business Bureau
of Hawaii’s advice on how to make sure charitable donations really go to
charity and not to con artists during the holiday season, the busiest time of
the year for the donations derby.
For your protection, the Bureau keeps
track of which contribution-seeking organizations locally and nationally are
upstanding and which ones are not worthy. BBB also suggests would-be donors ask
how their money will be used, request printed information about the progrm, and
never give out personal financial information, such as credit card
A call to BBB’s hot-line at 1-877-222-6551, or logging into
www.bbb.org for charity advisories could be time well-spent for ensuring that a
kindhearted gesture doesn’t become shark bait.
