American National Red Cross
November 27, 2011

There are many lies and untruths in the reviews here. I beg you to think for yourself - and be smart enough to search the truths.
Charity Navigator gives it 4 out of 4 starts. The highest rating possible. Judge for yourself: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=3277
The Red Cross has a budget of $3B and only spends $124 million on administration. As for the CEO's pay - if a non-profit didn't pay a high salary it would not be able to get and keep quality. This is true for any non-profit.

I have spend many hours volunteering over the years. I have helped in many areas doing different jobs - but no other organization can come close to the work the Red Cross does. It may not be perfect, but there isn't an organization that does better. It truly is run by volunteers.

There is absolutely no truth that the American Red Cross would/could ever charge for a cot nor water. When the Red Cross helps someone in the military, they do so with the Department of Defense. If they provide money it must be approved by the DoD and they set the terms... and it must be paid paid.

All disaster assistance is free.

The Great!
