KOMMONSENTSJANE – CHARITABLE NUGGETS OF WISDOM

Here is a real eye opener!  This came to me from a friend. To me it’s good to know when you donate and how the money is spent.

A timely reminder before our generous spirits opens up our wallets.  How many ways can you spell – G R E E D?

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’ 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! $0.00 goes to help anyone!

Instead,  rethink your donations and put your money where it will do some good – even if it is just a $1.00:

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.  Ninety-six (96) percent of donated dollars go to the cause.

The American Legion National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.  Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

The Veterans of Foreign Wars National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.  Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

The Disabled American Veterans National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.  Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

The Military Order of Purple Hearts National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.  Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

The Vietnam Veterans Association National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.  Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

Make a Wish:  For children’s last wishes.  100% goes to funding trips or special wishes for a dying child.

St. Jude Research Hospital – 100% goes towards funding and helping children with cancer who have no insurance and cannot afford to pay.

Ronald McDonald Houses.  All monies go to running the houses for parents who have critically ill children in the hospital – 100% goes to housing, and feeding the families.

Lions Club International – 100% of donations go to help the blind, buy hearing aids, support medical missions around the world.  Their latest undertaking is measles vaccinations (only $1.00 per shot).

Please share this with others.  Happy Halloween!
