I am glad to read the comments below. For myself the red flag was raised when a friend wanted me to walk with her. It would cost ME to walk and then raise money for THEM. HUH ???? I found a charity rating on line that said over 90% of the money raised did NOT go to research , but administrative and the like. It's just another business. Much like MADD. I sent them an email asking the person who was reading mine, how could you work for such an organization that rips people off in the name of the sick and dieing? Of course I got NO response. No defence either. Proved my point :( Further more, I would bet that CEO sister gets most of her lifestyle paid for through the org.. Even though she is taking NO salery. Deb Hendel
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Being asked to walk, and finding out the chinanigans with the money.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make sure MOST of the money went for research. If Salvation Army can do it , any org. can!
