Boy! did this open my eyes.
FLORIDA THE CHARITIES
WERE JUST A MEANS FOR
A BIG DANCE.
THIS IS SOME OF WHAT I
HAVE READ ON THE INTERNET.
Donating to these Charities??
It makes me so frustrated.
Number 1- The worse paid offender to the lowest paid offender.
A few pennies from the actual donations goes to the UNICEF cause
(less than $0.14 per dollar of income).
This really puts you in the Christmas Spirit doesn't it?
Number 2 - This year is Marsha J. Evans,
CEO of the American Red Cross. Get this- her salary for the year
ending in 2009 was $651,957 plus expenses. 6 weeks -
fully paid holidays including all related expenses during the
holiday trip for her and her husband and kids. including 100% fully paid health,
dental plan for her and her family.
UNICEF - CEO, receives $1,200,000 per year,and use of a Royal Royce
for his exclusive use where ever he goes, and an expense account that is
rumored to be well over $150,000 per year
This means out of every dollar they bring in,
about $0.39 goes to related charity causes.
Brian Gallagher, President of the United Way receives
a $375,000 Base salary
(U.S. funds)plus so many numerous expense benefits
it's hard to keep track
as to what it is all worth,
including a fully paid lifetime membership for 2 golf courses.
1 in Canada, and 1 in the U.S.A. 2 luxury vehicles,
a yacht club membership,
major company gold credit cards for his personal expenses..
What a disgrace these people are.
THIS IS JUST AWFUL --SHAME ON THESE THIEVES.
$0.51 per dollar of income goes to charity causes.
I can say for myself, when I lost my home in Florida during Andrew,
I went to UNITED WAY they gave me the run around,
should have been a famous Football player,
that way they could use me for ADVERTISEMENT.
--- GET LOST is about what happened. They get away with it.
I just needed some advice and info.
If this is only half true it's gone too far.
This info has been made available from the start 1998
They live like a Royal. World Vision President (Canada) receives
$300,000 base salary,supplied - a home valued in the $700,000 -
$800,000 dollar value range, completely furnished,completely paid
all housing expenses, including taxes, water/sewer, telephone/fax,
high speed cable, weekly maid service and pool/yard maintenance,
fully paid private schooling for his children, upscale automobile and
an $55,000 personal expense account for clothing/food,
with a $125,000 business expense account.
Get this, because it is a "religious based" charity, it pays,
little to no taxes, can receive government assistance and
does not have to declare were the money goes.
Only about $0.52 of earned income per dollar
is available for charity causes.
Now for some Good News::
The Salvation Army's Commissioner Todd Bassett receives
a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this
$2 Billion dollar organization. Which means about $0.93 per dollar earned,
is readily available and goes to the people that are having hard times.
Happy New Year.
