Helping After Harvey | Meet The iGen

A crisis can bring out the best in people ... and the worst. No one wants their good intentions to make them a victim of scam artists or wasteful charities. Today we're getting tips on how to donate, what to give and how to vet potential recipients. And, we'll hear from the American Red Cross about its disaster assistance in light of concerns over how it spends donations. We're joined by Michelle Singletary, syndicated columnist of "The Color of Money" for The Washington Post, Jacob Harold, president and CEO of GuideStar, Mari Kuraishi, co-founder and president of GlobalGiving, Suzy DeFrancis, chief public affairs officer of the American Red Cross and Jonathan Katz, author of "The Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster." Then, need a break from disaster coverage? Take our quiz on the smartphone generation ... precisely how iGen are you? It's at Click on "The Smartphone Generation: Less Sex, Fewer Drinks, More Depression."
