Last night I was watching the tube when a commercial came on about donating to Unicef. By the time it was all over, I had to get a mob and a pale to swab up all my tears. These professional hustlers sure know how to put the con on.
The lady I thought was the CEO of Unicef was the narrator. She should have gotten the Academy award for her performance.
I decided to look up how much of the money donated to Unicef went directly to the cause. Just as I suspected: The worst offender was yet again for the 11th year in a row is, UNICEF – CEO, receives $1,200,000 per year, (plus use of a Royal Royce for his exclusive use where ever he goes, and an expense account that is rumoured to be well over $150,000.) Only pennies from the actual donations goes to the UNICEF cause (less than $0.14 per dollar of income).
Instead of giving the lady the academy she should be put in the slams for duping people with their heartbreaking scam.
Those numbers should be reversed with 86% going to the charity and 14% used for operational purposes. There should be guidelines established as to how much ANY charity could use for administrative purposes.
We all remember the Wounded Warrior thieves?? Their thieving ways finally caught up with them. The top 3 hustlers were forced to resign.
A person has to be a special kind of degenerate to pray on the public’s heartstrings with commercials they use with these very destitute kids to generate money. How do they look themselves in the mirror or sleep at night? I guess when a person is a scumbag they don’t have a conscience.
The list is just a few of the worst.
Can we even imagine if 90% of the money donated to charities went directly to the source what great things could be accomplished?? Here are a few tips.
For all of the benevolent donors out there. Make sure you check out any organization you are donating to before you open you check book. There are a few out there that sincerely do an honest service for the needy but they have to be weeded out.
