Your reviews are no longer accurate. There is an electronic blockade of accepting reviews from charity donors and current reviews cannot be given. With many more charities depending on corporate funding to stay afloat, their priorities are shifting. Donors who know the truth are pulling back and supporting groups with more integrity. They want to warn and direct potential donors about the truth of some of the charities, but the reviews are not being posted. I know a number of people who have gotten frustrated and quit trying after 30 minutes, several attempts, failing to reach you, etc.

Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc.

We no longer donate. NRDC clearly bows to industry instead of the environment. It repeats talking points about technology saving us from ourselves instead of defending natural resources like basic requirements for life. NRDC now speaks out for the forced installation of smart meters and the smart grid, which represent a contamination of our "wireless commons", the space around us. Smart meters have created terrible suffering and will continue to do so. If NRDC gets its way there will be no escape anywhere from the invisible unwanted microwave penetration of our homes and communities.

(Below is an excerpt of a 3-page letter being mailed to EDF.)

It’s laundry day in America and nothing seems to escape the greenwash. The funding for the grid enterprise amounts to serious money and extends to universities, foundations and other institutions of public trust. Environmental organizations, it seems, are not immune from enticements. It is a very sorry day for me to witness noble missions dedicated to protecting life on this planet be thwarted by falling to the allure of grant money and the invitations to sit at the table of power. It is a story told too often, this fall from grace. I cannot continue to support your organization or the others who have yielded their skepticism and good sense to the “science” of public relations and feel-good policy.
