If you want to help Armenians in a time of crisis, there are some things you can do. First, be sure to react with intention. The gift, especially after a disaster, is powerful so you want to make sure you are giving to an organization that has a dedicated response effort. Money really is the most effective gift. A monetary donation will allow the charity to quickly purchase any supplies for constantly changing needs.
Consider the long term. Making a donation in the short term is important to address immediate needs, such as clothing, shelter, and food, but also consider becoming a partner to help with recovery work. Check in with the organization you choose to see how their needs change over time and how you can continue to support them. Be sure to give to an established charity. In a crisis, there can be certain individuals that take advantage of the generosity and end up pocketing your donation.
