Here's something both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney can agree on.
Hurricane Sandy has devastated parts of the East Coast and the Red Cross needs all the donations it can get for disaster relief! The politicians are calling on every American to help support the cause and have tweeted:
The President took the next step by visiting the organization's headquarters in Washington, DC on Tuesday and warned that "the storm is not yet over."
Regardless of any more damage that may be on the way though, he wants anyone affected by Sandy to know that help is on the way and stated:

Not a bad deal if you ask us.
Its been over five months since Japan was demolished by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Thankfully, people haven't forgotten about the devastation in the country and are still putting together relief efforts to raise money for those in need. Linkin Park is prepared to do their part to get help to Japan and they've launched their own unique campaign to do it.
The band has started a fundraiser on the site Give2gether.com. They've put out the message to fans that the first 500 people to raise $500 or more will get a pair of tickets to a secret Los Angeles show that's scheduled to take place

Oh, this does not look good.
Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti charity has once again come under fire due to claims that the organization's vice president, Zakiya Khatou-Chevassus, was paid $147,000 in 2009, which is a $42,000 salary increase from her job as consulate in 2008 and $15,000 more than president Hugh Locke!
That's a lot of money being handed out that could have gone to disaster relief!
Let's hope that history isn't repeating itself, bb!
You've gotten yourself into enough trouble with these organizations!
