A worthy charity - for our troops
Reposted as history. Originally posted in January of 2005.
Have you ever noticed that charities that have been in existence for some time always seem to become pockets of protection for people who take money and never pass it along? 9-11 proved that the Red Cross has become such a group. The vast majority of the money goes to paid staff and overhead, not the people who need it.
Even the USO has become a treadmill where most of the money goes to "admin", rather than entertaining the troops. They still do good work, but the percentages are wrong.
New charities seem to start with more idealism and purity, and for a while they do great work, and everything goes to the people who are being helped. Our troops need this during this time of war, and there is a new group of charities that is doing things really worthwhile for them.
The troops themselves are telling stories about what these people accomplish, and reporters who investigated them came back with the same conclusion, they are for real. I came across them when another blog site I regularly visit refused to take donations but instead asked that his supporters should support them.
