Charity and the Wise Patriot

THINK BEFORE YOU DONATE

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE YOU MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS:
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
President and CEO Marsha J. Evans'r
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:
The Salvation Army
Commissioner, Todd Bassett receives a small salary of only
$13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization.
96 percent of donated dollars go to the cause.

And if you really want to give to the needy I have a Pay Pal account.

Red, thanks for that one. I try to slip a few bucks to good charities, especially this time of the year, and almost decided to go Galt this season. Screw it. Your list of worthy charities is very welcome. Thanks.

Tom on Guntalk radio show did a Veterans Day show yesterday. Said he invited Wounded Wariers to be on. They refused. Reason: the show was about GUNS. Screw them. You have a good list of Veteran organizations. Go there.

Done :)

I recall that the Red Cross did not give aid to the victims of 9/11 until pressured. UNICEF: UN. The UN is hopelessly corrupt (oil for food scandel, sex abuse scandels, failure to prevent the Rawandan Genocide). I cannot say I am surprised over Goodwill either.

Thanks for the list.

I have received this email before but never passed it on. I received it from my Brother from another Mother (my beloved Ex-Brother In-Law) on this "Veterans Day". He is a man I am proud to call my friend, regardless of my relationship with his sister. YES, we give each other a manly hug EVERYTIME we get the oportunity to be blessed in mutual company. Semper Fi, you ol' crotchity f**k, I will always consider it my pleasure to have known you. A prayer goes out to you and ALL who have sacrificed, May God always be on your side.

One more to add to the Do NOT list, the HSUS. Scam you into thinking that you are "helping the animals" and it's all BS.

timbo said...

Thanks for this list. Good vs evil.

Incredible. TY -55six

tripseven said...

Is the ASPCA on that shit-list? I hope not...or Im a reject. Nice setup BTW!

hiswiserangel said...

I didn't bother with ASPCA or NAACP.

MissK said...

WOW! Great Post Angel. I've always wondered about this... why I'm so reluctant to "give" to charities. Thank you for sharing :-)

crankyjohn said...

How about the NCCAP, the national council of cranky ass people.

hiswiserangel said...

I'll donate to that if you'll donate to ROBOT.
Redheaded Obsessive Bitches of Texas.

Grand said...

You two are almost starting to get funny. Almost.

hiswiserangel said...

Let us know when we get there. :-D

crankyjohn said...

But I thought you were all sunshine and rainbows?

hiswiserangel said...

I AM DAMMIT.

crankyjohn said...

How did that motorcycle sound again?

hiswiserangel said...

I made a vow to not ban anyone before wirecutter....

crankyjohn said...

Ive been kicked out of worse places than this.

hiswiserangel said...

Don't know whether to be proud or insulted.

crankyjohn said...

I have been banned for life from the Huffington post, along with my children and grand children.

hiswiserangel said...

Damn Man, I'd wear that as a badge of honor! I'd be putting that on my Christmas cards...

tripseven said...

Crap...guess I'll shift that donation to our local 40 et 8.

That reminds me, one pre-Thanksgiving, handing out turkeys/groceries, my very senior good friend Paul had this Mexican in line come to him. Paul asks "How many in your family?" Mexican says "Nine kids." Paul asks him "What's their names?" Mexican; uh wha da bla. He ended up with dinner for two LOL. God I love that ol timer...still sharp as a whip!
