My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA
I'm always amazed that people think non profits should pay their people nothing. That's why many non profits have under educated people running them. One poster said that the advertising budget was way too high. Are you kidding? Do you know what people have to pay to get their ads in the media. It is rape to be sure but it's rape by the media. I like the WWP because they do what they can with what they have. One poster said he had an amputation and all sorts of problems but his complaint was that they didn't use him enough in their ads. Many of the complainers are 100% disabled from service related issues. My father was 100% disabled from service related wounds in Vietnam. My sister is 100% disabled from service during this war. My two brothers are still active, both officers, and with over 30 years each, they have a few issues and have been deployed more than their share. (The majority of service personnel never actually see combat) but my brothers certainly have and still are. My dad was retired, disabled and a little bit more than a little beat up but he still found something to do to pay the extra bills beyond his disability, retirement and what ever else the USAF gave him. My sister is exactly the same way. Retired after 20 she has quite a few physical problems, and is considered 100% disabled but she doesn't complain she just soldiers on. My brothers have both seen more than their share of goatscrews mostly due to things that a person sees that he can't unsee. But also due to the inability of the American Military to train it's officers properly and stop being the welfare system that attracts every guy who thinks this is a free ride. Some of you guys need to stop whining and embrace the suck. No one put a gun to who ever started the WWP's head and said, " hey create a non profit to help out where the US Govt. is failing our brothers, or we'll blow your head off!"
This guy started this because he thought he could help. Because if he had any smarts at all he would start a for-profit organization and retire to Tahiti or someplace. The American population has this so backward that I can't believe it. Non-profits are penalized for using their money to try to make money! Because if they did use their money to attract the brightest talent and make TV ads that played during primetime instead of 3am on a cable network, they would be solving all the problems they set out to solve because the money would flow in. But Nope Instead, they spend too much time answering the backlash of criticism from whiny people who demand that some one other than themselves be responsible for their lives. Which is asinine because you knew when you enlisted that you weren't working at McDonalds.
Listen if Haji kicked your butt in the sand pit, and you didn't come home in a box then put your boots back on the ground and help yourself and these non profits out. If you didn't get out of them what you had hoped to get out of them then find out where they are failing and see if you can help in some way.
