We feel that disaster relief may not be the ideal cause for people seeking to accomplish as much good as possible with their donations (more below). However, we feel it is an important cause because it is so emotionally compelling and because donors often have so little to go on in making a decision.

- East Africa/Somalia famine, mid-2011
- Japan earthquake/tsunami, March 2011
