I just had to post this. Looks like I will have to change my donation habits.


 Donations - Where Does The Money Go ?




Donating - Interesting, ever wonder where that donation money goes? 

Keep these facts in mind when "donating". As you open your pockets 
for yet another natural disaster, keep the following facts in mind; we 
have listed them from the highest (worse paid offender) to the lowest 
(least paid offender). 

The worst offender was yet again for the 11th year in a row is, UNICEF - CEO, 
receives $1,200,000 per year, (plus use of a Rolls Royce for his exclusive 
use where ever he goes, and an expense account that is rumored to be well 
over $150,000.) Only pennies from the actual donations goes to the UNICEF 
cause (less than $0.14 per dollar of income). 

The second worst offender this year is Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO 
of the American Red Cross... for her salary for the year ending in 2009 was 
$651,957 plus expenses. Enjoys 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, 
for life. This means out of every dollar they bring in, about $0.39 goes to 
related charity causes. 


The third worst offender was again for the 7th time was, 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, 
3 major company gold credit cards for his personal expenses... and so on. This 
equates to about $0.51 per dollar of income goes to charity causes. 

Fourth worst offender who was also again in the fourth spot, for every year since 
this information has been made available from the start 1998 is amazingly yet again, 
World Vision President (Canada) receives $300,000 base salary, (plus 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, 
HD/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.

Of the sixty some odd "charities" we looked at, the lowest paid 
(President/C. EO/Commissioner) was heading up a charity group 
in  Canada  . We found, believe it or not, it was...... 
Ready for this.. 
I think you might be surprised... 
It is, none other than... 
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 back out to local charity causes... truly amazing 
.. and well done "Sally Anne" 


No further comment is necessary..."Think Twice" before you give to your 
Charity of choice as to which one really does the best for the most - or the 
least for the most, for that matter. Remember charity starts at home. Look after the people of this country. 


99% of people won't have the guts to forward this. 


I Just Did!
