I used to give monthly to the American Red Cross until I found out that their CEO, Gail J. McGovern, makes $995,718 a year. She may do a good job, but nobody should be able to profit excessively from a charitable organization. It's a shame than one person spoils it for the rest, especially those that are in REAL need. Gail, why don't you lower your pay to $300,000. Although, I still think that's too much, it would convince me to start giving again especially if reports show that the Red Cross is doing a good job.
