Why do I need to add Catholic Relief Services to my email address book?

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo! are constantly developing and improving new filters to cut down on spam. Unfortunately, sometimes these filters can block emails that you want to receive. The best way to ensure that you will receive email from us is to add [email protected] to your email address book, contacts or safe senders list.

How can I continue to receive emails from Catholic Relief Services?
