behind the children, applied his
brakes and moved to the left,

was in terrible shape," he under-
stood that the boy had received
abrasions and may have injured
one vertebra.

deputy noticed a strong odor of
alcohol and asked Dawson to

When deputies arrived, the brothers were standing on the west side
of the building. As Mallory approached them, he noticed the strong
odor of alcohol present on both men and saw a laceration above Chris

responded, "Just go, on aboutyour business. We don't need you here,"
and then began screaming obscenities at Mallory.
The deputy told the men they would be arrested if they didn't calm
down but they continued yelling.

PENSACOLA It is regular
as clockwork. Within days of
any natural .disaster, the Bet-
ter Business Bureau knows that
some people will attempt to take
advantage of Americans' eager-
ness to assist victims of the trag-
"The BBB Wise Giving Al-
liance encourages the public
to contribute to helpful causes
that will assist the families and
victims of the Tsunami catastro-
phe," said Art Taylor, president
and CEO of the BBB Wise Giv-
ing Alliance. "Donors should
make certain, however, that the
charity is properly registered
with appropriate state govern-
ment agencies, that it describes
exactly What it will do to address
the needs of victims, and that it
is willing to provide written in-
formation about its finances and
"Donors can visit the give.org
website to access detailed evalu-
ative reports on many of the
U.S. based relief organizations
providing assistance in South
Asia," said Taylor. "We also en-
courage other U.S. based disas-
ter relief organizations provid-
ing Tsunami assistance to enroll
with the Alliance at give.org so,
that we can evaluate their efforts
in relation to the 20 Standards
for Charity Accountability."
In addition to checking with
the BBB Wise Giving Alliance,
donors should consider the fol-
lowing tips: .
1. Donors should be wary of
an\ charity that is inexperienced
in carrying out relief efforts
but is suddenly soliciting for
Tsunami assistance. Although
well intendioned, such organiza-
tions may not have the ability to
quickly deliver aid to those in,
2. Be wary of appeals that are
long on emotion, but short on
describing what the-charity will
do to address the needs of vic-
tims and their families. Also see
if the charity's appeal explains
what the charity intends to do
\\ith any excess contributions
remaining after they have fully
funded the disaster relief activi-
ties mentioned in solicitations.
3. As % %ith all other disas-
ter relief situations. most relief
charities prefer financial con-
tribuuons rather than donated
goods. This enables, them to
purchase needed items near the
disaster relief sitets,s for easier
distribution. The collection and
deliberN of inappropriate donat-
ed items can also clog transpor-
tation channels and delay more
vital items in getting through to
disaster victims.
4. If you contribute., do not
give cash. Make a check or
mione, order out to the name of.
the charitable organization. not
to an individual collecting the
5. If oti decide to contribute
. online, ind out more about the
charity before making a con-
tribution and be aw\are of red

ties imitate the name and style
of a well-known organization in
order to confuse people. Also,
when clicking on the link to "do-
nate," look at the organization's
URL in the browser window.
Exercise caution if the domain
name is hidden, is not familiar
to you, or is not the same as the
one stated in the text of the link.
6. Watch out for excessive
pressure for on-the-spot dona-
tions. Be wary of any request to
send a "runner", to pick up your
7. Do not give your credit
card number or other personal
'information to a telephone so-
licitor or in response to an email
solicitation. Ask the caller or
sender to provide you with writ-
terninformation on the charity's
programs and finances.
8. Do not hesitate to ask for
written information that de-
scribes the charity's program(s)-
and finances such as the charity's
latest annual report and financial
statements. Even newly created
organizations should have some
basic information available.
9. Be wary of charities that are
reluctant to answer reasonable
questions about their operations,
finances and programs. Ask how
much of your gift will be used
for the activity mentioned in
the appeal and how much will
go toward other programs and
administrative and fund raising

which address various charity
governance, finances, fund rais-

nors are also encouraged to in-
quire about relief organizations
not currently on give.org so that

tional charities that might be the

Text: John 15:20
Robert Morgan tells about John
Fawcett iOnn This Day. Fawcett was
the pastor of a Baptist church in Eng-
land. The church was poor and the pas-
tor's family was growing larger. Faw-
cett considered leaving. A call came
from London's Carter's Lane Church,
which was famous and prominent. He
gave his resignation and packed.
As he was leaving, the church gath-
ered to say goodbye holding back their
tears. Fawcett went back into the house
for the last box. He found his wife deep
in thought.
"John, do you think we're doing the
right thing? Will we ever find a con-
gregation to love us. and help us with
the Lord's work like this group here?"
she asked.
Both decided they had not taken
time to pray and that God would have
them stay. They walked outside and
told their friends. With tears of joy, they
unloaded the wagons. Fawcett stayed
there the rest of his life. He later wrote
the hymn, "Blessed be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love."
Jesus said, "If they obeyed My
teaching, they will obey yours also
(NIV)." Not everyone will hate you
because you are a Christian. Those who
love Christ will also love you. Jesus
said, "By this all men will know that
you are my disciples, if you love one
another (NIV)."
People are very different. I have
met all kinds of different people. There
are educated, uneducated, rich, poor,
young, old, successful, unsuccessful,
male, and female. I have been across
the sea and met people with a com-
pletely different language and culture.
One thing always holds true: When-
ever I am among tue L'hn.iann. I'am
among friends.
