My decision to support The Seeing Eye was made after I saw a dog guiding someone through Manhattan. I watched in amazement as they navigated the crowds, avoided obstacles on the sidewalk and crossed the street with ease. The confidence that I saw in both the dog and the person was absolutely incredible! Impressed does not even begin to describe my feelings for this amazing organization.

The Seeing Eye is an incredible organization. They have restored independence for thousands of blind people through their incredible dogs. My problem with the organization? Given that it posts higher expenses than revenues annually, why does their president earn nearly $300k annually + benefits? Doesn't seem reasonable that a relatively small organization president is truly worth 75% of what the President of the United States earns! It makes me wonder if the board is engaged enough to be overseeing such important issues.
