A Million Bucks Will Do a Lot of Good!


It has been verified now that our President’s promise to personally donate $1 million to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey has been kept.

The president sent 12 checks to various organizations helping Texas and Louisiana recover after last month’s disastrous storm, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed to The Hill.

Rather than just giving a bunch of money to some “Save the Globe” fake charity that would keep most of the money for themselves, as a lot of Hollywood types tend to do, the White House did their homework and made sure the groups receiving money would help the most vulnerable people impacted by the double-state hurricane strikes over the last month.

The Salvation Army and American Red Cross received the most notable donations — $300,000 each.

Reach Out America and the Samaritans Purse, two Christian relief organizations, received $100,000 each and the other eight groups — ASPCA, Catholic Charities, Direct Relief, Habitat for Humanity, the Houston Humane Society, Operation Blessing, Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies and Team Rubicon – would receive $25,000 each, according to the report.

And, in answer to the Left’s whining that I have seen on Twitter about “I’ll believe it when I see it,” well, here you go:

Many of the organizations confirmed to The Hill that the donations had been received. Reach Out America confirmed on Facebook they received their $100,000.

Yep, that’s a win.

    Mickey Kaus: “Heritage Action raising money to build the wall.  Specifically, ‘Get the wall built – donate today!’”

    Maybe Trump can donate to this.

    Giving to private charities is a conservative value. On his own President Trump has very good instincts. I do have a concern about the current White House team. In any event, great thanks are due the POTUS.
