Haiti Earthquake Relief: Where Does The Money Go?

The easiest way to help the relief efforts in Haiti right now is to donate. The problem? Many potential donors are worried that their money will fall into an endless bureaucracy, not got spent properly, or get spent on something else altogether. So, when you give money to a nonprofit organization in a disaster relief situation, where does it go?

CNN's Alina Cho asked UNICEF's Lisa Szarkowski about money that gets donated to her organization. Szarkowski says that donations are converted into aid within a matter of hours.
