There is a hoax email going around that claims that the CEO of Unicef makes more than a million dollars per year and other false claims about other charities, including false claims that the ceo's of organizations like the American Legion, VFW, DAV, etc. work for free. However, it is hard to understand why Caryl Stern, the executive director of Unicef's United States Fund makes almost $484k per year when Anthony Lake, the executive director of Unicef itself makes just over $200k. Also, I was very much put off by Unicef USF yesterday when I received a "free" unsolicited tote bag, so I do have some issues with how Unicef USF spends its money, and will make future donations directly to Unicef instead.
