For some reason I can't respond directly to your review tsomekwas, so I will respond in a review as I believe you deserve answers. First inaccuracy is in Jan Sako's title. He is not the Manager. I know this is a picky point, but it goes to the quality of research. And as I stated in Ken's comment he is a better journalist than that. Second, you loop everything into Garson & Shaw. Does this mean Goodwill is harboring the same fugitive as they sell a portion of their goods to Garson & Shaw as well? Yes, there are several non and for-profit organizations that support the same causes. In every industry. So the link to Gaia and others is technically factual, but no more nefarious than Garson & Shaw's link to Ford Motor Company who buys insulation from a company in Germany that buys rags from Garson & Shaw. If what you are suggesting is true, this is one heck of a global scheme. Since I can link several multinational organizations to this company, I think you may wish to revise these stories with KPIX/CBS and out everyone! Again, as I stated in the comment to Ken, we at Campus California don't expect everyone to agree with our mission, or support our cause. We are going to have people such as yourself and other volunteers and students that will be unhappy. But I don't believe we are unique in this either. I appreciate your passion and hope that my response is sufficient. I will conclude by saying since Campus California received its 501(c)3 determination letter the non-profit has remained in good standing with the IRS, the parameters of a non-profit organization under the 501(c)3 laws and have been financially audited as required by law. All of Campus California's financial data is available for public review and the most recent 2011 financials are on the website at http://www.campus-california.org.
