Warning: Fraudulent Request for Support for Newton Victims and Families

As reported online and in this segment from AC 360 shows exactly why it is so incredibly risky to donate to victims of disasters like the Newton shooting or Supserstorm Sandy via random websites. 

Please make sure to use your head and not just give based on emotion. There are legit charities out there collecting money for the victims.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
