I'm all for giving to help relief efforts in Haiti, but have a complaint about some of the appeals. For example, the text message that automatically sends $10 to the Red Cross. Nothing wrong with that, but I would like to know that other charities had the opportunity to do the same, particularly if these are advertised as a free public service announcements.

Also, much as I admire Michele Obama, I think that it is wrong for her to promote giving to the Red Cross, to the exclusion of other relief organizations. I have nothing against the Red Cross, but why not have her ask for funds to be divided among the Red Cross, Salvation Army, UNICEF, and perhaps one or two others.
