Just to refresh you. Can you spell big time GREED? All in the name of helping others! 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!  
Stop giving to this man.

 Instead, give it to ANY OF THE FOLLOWING.

GO "GREEN" AND PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE IT WILL DO SOME GOOD:

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.

96 percent of donated dollars go to the cause.

Please note that 50% of the organizations that are on the "GOOD" list are Veteran Organizations. I would say that is proof positive that we help each other and that regardless of the branch of service we are brothers and sisters

In these tough economic times, we still take care of each other. Continue to march.

keith I am with you, veterans take care of our own, non- vets could have a stronger bond with others if only they could be more giving instead being takers, not all Non- vets are bad , but there is no better bond then vets or active duty, and we all served our country no matter what branch we were in, We vets can talk shop with any vet, and believe me I have chatted with many vets , we have our language and nobody understands exept us, so we are in a life long brotherhood, glad you and all my Tarawa shipmates are brothers.
