Red Cross Donations for earthquake

For those of you willing to help out:

The Costa Rican Red Cross is accepting donations to help the victims of this disaster:

http://www.cruzroja.or.cr/

They have set aside a bank account that specifically accepts US$ donations:

Account #: 68666-7

Account name: Cruz Roja Costarricense

Bank: Banco Nacional de Costa Rica

Bank address.:Avenidas 1 y 3, Calle 4, San José, Costa Rica.

SWIFT: BNCRCRSJ

Luis (or anyone else here in CR), could you please independently confirm this information?

I don't want people to think that this is some kind of scam and hence, included the original website of the CR Red Cross.

Since the information is incomplete, I have added the necessary banking information. You can verify this by going directly to Banco Nacional's website:

http://www.bncr.fi.cr/

You can find the address and swift number at the very bottom of the page.

It just occurred to me that others might be just as paranoid as I about internet fraud.

Hence, I suggest those interested verify the information I have provided above by googling both Cruz Roja Costa Rica and Banco Nacional Costa Rica.

This way you can be sure that you are not falling victim to a fraudulent site.

In addition to sending money to the Red Cross, perhaps tourists heading to Costa Rica in the coming weeks and months could bring relief supplies in their luggage. What is the best way to drop off clothing or whatever else is needed? Maybe a drop box at the airport?
