Donating - Interesting, ever wonder where that donation money goes?
Keep these facts in mind when "donating". As you open your pockets for
yet another natural disaster, keep the following facts in mind; we have
listed them from the highest (worse paid offender) to the lowest (least
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 Rolls Royce for his
exclusive use where ever he goes, and an expense account that is

The second worst offender this year is Marsha J. Evans, President and
CEO of the American Red Cross... for her salary for the year ending in
2009 was $651,957 plus expenses. Enjoys 6 weeks - fully paid holidays
including all related expenses during the holiday trip for her and her
husband and kids. including 100% fully paid health & dental plan
for her and her family, for life. This means out of every dollar they
bring in, about $0.39 goes to related charity causes.
The third worst offender was again for the 7th time was, Brian
Gallagher, President of the United Way receives a $375,000 base salary
(U. S. funds), plus so many numerous expense benefits it's hard to keep

membership for 2 golf courses (1 in Canada, and 1 in the U. S. A.), 2
luxury vehicles, a yacht club membership, 3 major company gold credit
cards for his personal expenses... and so on. This equates to about
$0.51 per dollar of income goes to charity causes.
Fourth worst offender who was also again in the fourth spot, for every
year since this information has been made available from the start 1998

speed cable, weekly maid service and pool/yard maintenance, fully paid
private schooling for his children, upscale automobile and an $55,000
personal expense account for clothing/food, with a $125,000 business
expense account). Get this, because it is a "religious based" charity,
it pays, little to no taxes, can receive government assistance and does
not have to declare were the money goes. Only about $0.52 of earned
income per dollar is available for charity causes.
Of the sixty some odd "charities" we looked at, the lowest paid
(President/C. EO/Commissioner) was heading up a charity group in
Canada. We found, believe it or not, it was......
Ready for this..
I think you might be surprised...
It is, none other than...
The Salvation Army's Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary of
only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 Billion
dollar organization. Which means about $0.93 per dollar earned, is
readily available and goes back out to local charity causes... truly
amazing... and well done "Sally Anne" !!!!
No further comment is necessary..."Think Twice" before you give to your
