This charity is guilty of harassment of me and my family. I will never give to them. If you are thinking about giving to them, you had better check out their rating first. Then I'm pretty sure that you will NOT give anything to this charity. They call my home about once a day at all times of the day and it is robo calling and you never get a chance to tell then to stop calling. They call us even though we are on the no-call list.
I gave a couple of times. Then decided to do the research I should have done long ago. Now when they call I simply tell them I have done some research and won't be giving to them anymore. They usually slam the phone down. I hope I ruin these scumbags day.
How about this >>>>> These charities deserve NO stars!!!! I just watched the CNN presentation for the third time. I've given to both the Breast Cancer and Children's Cancer Fund, each year over the last few years. Wow! How selfish can you be - stealing in the name of the poor and sick!
They'd better not call my home again. Someone's going to get their feelings hurt.
Sick and Disgusted
I received a call today from 1-877-218-8370 and the rep was very, very nice (a little too nice). She told me she would send out my donation envelope for $50.00 but I told her I would donate $20.00. She put her 'secretary' on the phone and requested by credit card information. I explained I don't give that information on my checking account over the phone, but if they mailed me something, I would send in the donation. The line disconnected! I WILL NEVER DONATE TO THIS ORGANIZATION.
they call too much I am disabled but I cant stand the thought of selfishness with what is given to me. I had a stroke so i dont really deserve this money, but i also cant function in society so i want to give back... but it seems scammy at this point.
Review from CharityNavigator
I previously donated to this organization but this year decided to do some research before answering calls for donations. My research determined that nearly 95% of the money donated goes towards corporate salaries, commissions and administrative costs. I have stopped donating to them but they continue to call me 8-10 times per day. Additionally, it appears that the company operating the Childrens Cancer Fund of America also runs several other funds, each calling me for donations. This company sells your information to others and will not stop calling. I recommend that no one contribute to this organization but research companies like the American Cancer Society and other reputable organizations where your money will be used for something other than CEO payouts.
Review from CharityNavigator
This organization called me last year and asked for a $25 contribution. I said that I could send a check. The caller pressured me for a credit card number, saying that they would get the donation faster - I said no. I received their letter and sent in the check. I then received a call thanking me and asking for another contribution. They promised not to call again, but I said no thanks. Since then they have called twice. Each time I have reminded them that they said they wouldn't call again and I hang up.
I am very upset because I found out that only a small percentage of their donations actually gets paid out and that the BBB has asked them for information with no response.
A few weeks ago I received a mailing like the kind you would get once you have offered money. I knew I had not made a donation promise, so I threw it away. The next week I received a call from the charity reminding me that I promised to make an annual contribution. I asked them the date of my last donation. The solicitor said I last gave in July. I said I wanted to make an annual donation and that if I had given in July then it was too early for another donation. Then the solicitor told be the previous donation was July of 2011. This was a LIE, but I did not discover it until after I promised a small donation. When I went back to my records I discovered that my last contribution was made THIS July. I am sending the donation this time in the hopes that it will actually do some good, but I have my doubts. I will no longer be making any contributions to this charity.
