PSAid contestants are encouraged to submit compelling and aesthetically creative print or video PSAs encouraging Americans to practice Smart Compassion when helping people affected by emergencies overseas by providing monetary donations to proven relief organizations. The Center for International Disaster Information (CIDI) informs that cash donations are less expensive for donors and more beneficial to recipients than are material donations.  It’s simple: save lives, save money – send cash.
