Humanitarian desires


Subject: Humanitarian desires -
I would add Food For The Poor to this list, plus IRC, International Rescue Committee, both of which compare to the Salvation Army in percentage of money going for help - only 3-4% going for administrative costs and fund raising.

A good reminder with the holiday, giving season ahead.
THINK BEFORE YOU DONATE
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE YOU MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS: and DO YOUR RESEARCH
  

As you open your pockets to do a good thing and make yourself feel good,
please keep the following facts in mind:

The American Red Cross
Takes in 1 Billion Dollars a year, with no Federal or State assistance, the Red Cross has its own code under the IRS. They loan money to military personnel on Emergency leave at no interest, and charge for coffee & donuts at USO Clubs.
President and CEO Marsha J. Evans'
salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses

MARCH OF DIMES

It is called the March of Dimes because
only a dime for every 1 dollar is given to the needy
 
The United Way
President Brian Gallagher
receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.

UNICEF

CEO Caryl M. Stern receives
$1,200,000 per year (100k per month) plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE.
Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause.

GOODWILL

CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year.  Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business.  You donate to his business and then he sells the items for PROFIT.  He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice Guy. 
$0.00 goes to help anyone! Stop giving to this man.

Instead,
 give it to ANY OF THE FOLLOWING

GO "GREEN" AND PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE IT WILL DO SOME GOOD:
