  1. Although I am very much appreciative of the updates, the images cannot give any definite proof. If anything I’d much rather prefer a video showing progress? I looked, or at least tried to, at a video on Red Cross helping with a tropical storm, but that video seemed to be deleted. A video on helping the Haitian people would be nice? Instead of seeing how much despair they are still in regardless of the money we donated. And images can never be trusted really… they all looked so… “posed”? Would you say… But yes, just wondering, maybe a video a month? Showing us how many people our help (money) has done? Just hoping 🙂
