OXFAM is a great organization - if it was not, Coldplay would not have supported that organization over such a long period of time and now again with the appeal to help HAITI via OXFAM. I visited Oxfam.uk to find latest news. But when I tried Oxfam International there was a big box in the middle with text codes instead of text! Strange.
On one of the two Oxfam websites (UK or international) there was a box (like a running banner) where an organization named DEC.org.UK (Disasters Emergency Committee) had an appeal to support Haiti and a number to use.
I read somewhere that there are swindler organizations taking advantage of the disaster to get money - thought of that when seeing this "running banner". Maybe this committee is real and good enough, but I chose to support via Danish Red Cross, and I recommend everyone to support via the well-known organizations.
I have the pleasure of accepting your friend's request. I see that one of your interests is OXFAM. Have you worked for OXFAM as a volunteer? Or are you "just" supporting OXFAM which is doing such a good job?
