55 per cent to the troops!!!! over 30 per cent on fundraising??? I guess those TV ads are expensive. Give to your local DAV or other local vets group.

$400,000 to 2 officers! only 65% of the money taken in goes to the vets! Give to the DAV of perhaps a local group. Their expensive TV ads cost a lot and its not going to the wounded vets!!

National Relief Charities
August 6, 2011

I havent visited this site in awhile and I can see that the folks who give you the souix nation relief fund, southwest indian relief council, american indian relief council,american indian education foundation, southwest indian childrens fund, native american AID, council of indian nations, southwest indian foundation, and my favorite, rescue operation for animals of the reservation, are still busy conning folks out of their money. As I read the latest batch of glowing comments I almost became ill. Look at ther history, look at all the money spend on mail outs, look at all the friend and relatives collecting nice paychecks all in the name of helping the poor native americans. There are many worthwhile charities who are really trying to help the indians. This is not one of them. If you cant donate locally, do some research and find a legitimate indian assistance program.
