SPRINGFIELD (KNWA) — While there are credible donation organizations in the area, authorities warn to be cautious before donating.
Springfield’s Better Business Bureau said crowdfunding campaigns like GoFundMe can be well intended, but ill-prepared.
To avoid putting your money in the wrong place, they created an alternative.
“What we want you to do is choose the charity you’re going to give to very wisely. We have a free website called Give.org. It’s for places just like this,” according to Springfield’s BBB.
