Review for Promise to Protect Inc, Asheville, NC, USA
One self-absorbed narcissist and his illiterate followers seem unable to understand what Protect does. Protect is a lobbying organization. That means *all* of the money goes to salaries--salaries of lobbyists, salaries of researchers, salaries of fund-raisers. And what are they raising funds for? To pay for the researchers and lobbyists. What are the researching? Laws that put children at risk of being sexually, physically, and emotionally abused. And what are the lobbyists doing? Threatening politicians until they pass laws to protect children. I've never made a single penny from protect, and I have spent a lot of my time personally raising funds (more than $40K to date) for the organization. Why? Because *no* one has done a better job of forcing legislation to protect children.

Before Protect, there were 38 states that gave child rapists a *bonus* if they selected their victims from under their own roof. Protect has succeeded in eliminating those laws in seven states.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The only change I would make to Protect is to increase the membership ten-fold. Everyone wants to protect the trees, protect the whales, protect their guns. Why are we so reluctant to protect our own species?
