A friend tagged me on Facebook on Tuesday. “Yvonne Mintz, can you verify that info is legit?”

It was a link to donate for flood victims through Br azoria County United Way and it included a “text to give” option. A quick text to a leader with that organization, plus an email with verification, and I was able to tell her, yes, that information was legitimate and the link a safe place to donate.
