Collecting Supplies/Water...A Good idea?

What an unimaginable tragedy the earthquake in Haiti was. Certainly we want to help and I commend the students who actually took it a step farther & organized this gathering of life saving supplies! The question I have is, wouldn't it be a better idea to donate the $ spent on these supplies to organizations already on the ground in Haiti who know what the situation is and what is needed to overcome it? Red Cross, faith based missions, etc. Also it's going to take $300. to get these supplies to the ship? Send the $300 to the Red Cross. From what I hear there is literally tons of supplies already sitting at the airport & being turned away because they can't land. Please don't take this the wrong way. To help these people we need to be more efficient.
