A good reminder with the holiday, giving season ahead.

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 the needy.

 

 

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 MONEYWHERE IT WILL
