My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Busted Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I spent many years doing biomedical research in laboratories. I am all in favor of tax dollars and charitable donations going to further our understanding of the science of cancer.
However, for me personally there's a better and more effective way of stamping out cancer and its horrible erosion of our loved ones' lives: direct action. In this case, direct action against the breast cancer that attacked my mom, my former boss, and my boss' boss — direct action in the form of helping women with a breast cancer diagnosis be strong, be brave, and not be distracted by financial considerations.
You could put that $5 in a jar at the convenience store, or you could give twice that, or five times that, or whatever you can afford, to directly help someone who will be hand-selected by the Busted Foundation board as someone whose life will be changed by your donation pooled with those of others. If you think long and hard about it, it's really the best "bang for your buck" in fighting breast cancer.
