In looking up this organization with the Attorney General's office in Illinois, I discovered that 80% of the money goes to pay for fund raising, and no where on their tax return does it show money going to the disabled firefighters. Which tells me basically that they are doing little to no good.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

painstakingly taking them at their word, and being deceived.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

totally restructure it, so that 80-90% went to the disabled firefighters, and 10-20% went toward fundraising.
