Review for Kids Wish Network, Inc., Holiday, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

CAUTION! Read the archived reviews.

This charity has a terrible record of enriching itself and related fundraisers at the expense of donors and kids whose dreams could be made true with sincere leadership and effective management.

Convincing a handful of beneficiaries and volunteers to write letters of support does not make a organization worthwhile. If you care about kids, give to one of the many organizations that will use the vast majority of your money for the kid's benefit instead of to line their own pockets.

In addition to outlandish payments to fundraisers, the Breiners are pocketing over $230K per year off-the-top.

Shut it down and direct funds to sincere and efficient organizations

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I have received disingenuous solicitations.
