Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA
Get out and see what this organization is doing. Then you may have a better understanding on what advertising and compensating talented people can achieve. The old saying of "you get what you pay for" is evident even with charities. I personally have no problem with the CEO being paid for outstanding work. Advertising is exactly how they bring in this amount of donations to fund their programs. The other Vet organizations are great and I commend them for what they are doing, but they are not reaching today's Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with the same impact as they may have once done for previous generations. They are doing their best and certainly provide help, but WWP understands how to connect with today's wounded, determine their needs, and empower them to get the help using more modern methods.
This charity has tremendously helped a few wounded veterans that I served with and I have seen the impact they've had with many more. I can completely understand why most posters here would draw their conclusion from just looking at the financials, but I encourage you to look at the bigger picture. Connect with a Wounded Warrior that has been helped by this organization and it may help you understand.
I couldn't be happier to be a donor and support these guys for the great work they do!
