    is this actually BPS?

    What is the source to verify this actually is being run by BPS?

    I feel like often there are "fundly" or similar donation-soliciting sites that are claimed to benefit someone after a disaster, but we have no way of verifying.

    I share your skepticism. In this case, a message about it was tweeted yesterday by Melissa Dodd, chief of staff at BPS and then retweeted by the official BPS Twitter account, so I figured it was legit.
