I agree with the original poster. Nothing bothers me more than to give generously to a charity I believe in and then find out they are not good stewards of donations. Hey, a 20 cents postcard would be thanks enough if they must send one. How about how United Way treated donations a few years back with gross excesses by the administrators? I still cannot stomach to give to them because of it. I give directly to the agency and not through them. Just recently our town spent over $20,000.00 to "rent" a Christmas tree and decorations. What are these fools thinking? That is a years salary for a lot of people to "rent" a tree! I think we all need to keep our eyes and ears open and research what is going on with our donations.
