Charities are the BIGGEST SCAM in the whole world
Charities are infact businesses, except they do not have to pay any tax or have their operations properly audited, if ever.

These charities pay their board members 6-7 figure salaries and leave the scraps for charity - which still doesn't reach the right people as the corrupt politicians put it in their back pockets denying the poor and needy of help.

They might tell you they are working to reduce poverty but thats fantasy bullshit to keep the sheeple feel guilty and pay up.

Do you really think world poverty can be made history?

Then where would all the big corporations get all the cheap and slave labour from?

Martians? cruise

Just look at how many charity fronts all these Big Banks and corporations have. They use it essentially as a tax haven, and makes their public image look "friendly and respectable".

So essentially their widespread corruption is often overshadowed by their charity fronts, because sheeple are too dumb to discern through the lies.

hmm yes I heard this before, best way to control and exploit something is to say you're trying to aid it

Not all.

ChildFund International devotes 83% of its total expenditures to programs for children.
[link to www.childfund.org]


These guys suck however. (Literally)

The American Red Cross President and CEO Marsha J. Evans' salary for the year was$951,957 plus expenses.


The United Way President Brian Gallagher receives a $675,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.
UNICEF CEO Caryl M. Stern receives $1,900,000 per year (158K) per month, plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE. 4.4 cents per donated dollar goes to the cause.

Susan G Komen CEO Hala G. Moddelmog, was paid $531,924 in 2010 and the other top executives received more than $5 MM split among them.


This seems more in line with philanthropy. ;-`)

The Salvation Army Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a 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.

Most of them are. They exist to create work for themselves. In almost all cases less than 20% of their takings go to the needy. One of the worst is Oxfam, who were first exposed in the 1970s but continue to operate because very few people take any notice of things like this. They give as a sop to their own conscience. The Red Cross is not much better. The only charity I have ever found to be worthy and who actually do what they say is the Salvation Army.

Agree Our President Choice grocery store has a childrens fund and every couple of months the cashiers ask if you want to donate 2.00 to the fund. Always say no, I know nothing about this fund and if any 10 cents gets there.

My favorite is the supermarket checkers that beg for donation. I swear they use it to increase their profits.
