Think, know the facts, before you donate

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' 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 research
              
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!
