I was about to start contributing to WWP in response to a mailing I received. One thing gave me reason to pause (the mediocre rating on Chartity navigator) and the second stopped me. While I own no firearms myself, WWP's policy of refusing assistance from firearms companies is simply amazing to me and the reason given related to some suicides with firearms by very troubled veterans is nonsensical. If you think some vet is going to be encouraged to kill himself with a firearm because your charity took a contribution from a firearms maker, you are delusional and you lose me as donor no matter how much good work you are doing. There are other charities with a lower overhead, anyway.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
