Kids Wish Network was named as THE worst charity in America by The Center for Investigative Reporting and was featured on CNN as such: "Every year, Kids Wish Network raises millions of dollars in donations in the name of dying children and their families. Every year, it spends less than 3 cents on the dollar helping kids. No charity in the nation has siphoned more money away from the needy over a longer period of time." (http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/13/us/worst-charities) They play off the name of well-established honest charities to confuse donors. They are in the midst of several lawsuits and investigations and should not be trusted with their money.
