Top 10 Craziest Bets
When we think of non-profits most of us think of organizations like the Red Cross, Save the Children or Meals on Wheels. Their status as a non-profit isn’t solely based on the intricacies of our tax system, but the result of the positive work they do in American communities and around the world. However, some organizations have used their status as a non-profit to procure not only favorable tax standing but to also secure massive profits for executives and board members of the organization. Many non-profits do very little to benefit their respective causes while using raised funds for unscrupulous purposes. In light of this, here are some charities that aren’t quite so charitable after all.

St. Judes. They are the biggest con in the country, and use
their so-called rehab centers to cure. But they aren't. They don't use
naturopaths on their staff, even- (the only real cure). St Judes
perpetuates the illnesses of the kids, and collects a billion dollars. They also use animal testing, and send out spam to donors asking for money, even after the donors try to unsubscribe.
cancer research seems to be such an emotive cause, after all we all know someone whos had cancer or died from it, so its easy for charities to get money from us , usually for pointless or cruel research on animals with no real benefits for sufferers....
Sadly, as my experience and awareness of "charities" grew I stopped giving money to ALL professionally manged fund raising drives. There are plenty of deserving service organizations in every locale, staffed by volunteers (includes conscientious volunteering professionals). I check my charities and peeps out first-hand.
It's not surprising that many of these organizations are cancer related. Do you not find it funny that we could send men to the moon in less than a decade with computers and electronics that were primitive at best but we can't find a cure for cancer? CANCER WILL NEVER BE CURED! Too many hands in the pocket.
Oh you'll see the occasional "breakthrough" but you'll never see a cure. Doctors, hospitals, the government, fundraisers, charities, etc., etc. You're talking about an industry that takes trillions and trillions of dollars in but outputs pennies on the dollar.
I'm a retired RN. I have worked briefly for a large cancer center. As with most of medicine, the physicians will tell you that they don't know what causes cancer but they know how to "treat it." I'll admit that the body is a very complex organism but after many, many, many decades of "research" they still don't have a clue what causes cancer. Curing cancer would put 10's of millions of people and organizations out of business.
They'll tell you that lung cancer is caused by smoking or ovarian cancer is caused by women using talcum powder or a host of other "causes." I've known people that smoked three packs of hand rolled, no filter cigarettes every day of their lives starting when they were teenagers that never developed cancer or any other major disease. I once had a Pulmonary Oncologist tell me that one of the worst things a "heavy" smoker could do is completely quit smoking. He said a large number of them will develop lung cancer within 1-2 years after quitting. I tend to believe him since my father died from lung cancer within a year of quitting. also, when I worked as a home health nurse the majority of my lung cancer patients were former smokers.
If people blindly contribute to charities such as this without holding those charities accountable then the status quo will continue.
Had an epiphany the other day when I got a call from one of the bogus Cancer charities listed here. You don't see these fraud health charities in Canada, Sweden, England or other places with Universal health care-only in 'Murica.
Just another reason I think Bernie Sanders is right about Medicare for all.
I don't what to call this list. Vastly incomplete? Politically correct? None of the Islamic ones? African relief that never gets to those who need it. Ones where Ceo's and boards make millions. Any of the U.N. ones. Come on.
I used to work at a red cross charity shop they had a box you could put your change in by the till and the manager of the shop used to take money out of it forhimself all the time all those little old people thought they were really helpinh but they were just buying the manager his lunch
FWIW, the irony here in someways NGO's are a little more trustable then the amazons. By law (and conventsions) all their accounting and what they do is a matter of public record. Like any other group they get bad ideas and run with them sometimes.
all charitys world wide are con merchants,no charity does what it states it is doing,,you alwas have the top wages for the people who run them,,if you want a real charity then sorry it has never been made yet,i include un,ucnf,and all over seas and local charitys in this rant,,they all rip off expences wages overheads as an excuse,they all get tax relife as well..all charitys are crooks..look at the ngo shops in the sea picking up illegals,,the skippers get a bonus every time they land in an eu nation
Are we overlooking something? This dictator president and his kids have used their charity foundation funds[million$$$$] like a checkbook to pay for personal items, trips, special interests, and lawyers. Isn't that enough to prosecute the whole family?
all the major charities (no matter what the country) are fraudulent (by which I mean that a tiny fraction of any donation makes it to the victims). Here in Ireland a number were caught out in the past decade paying exorbitant salaries to the wealthy elite who would spend a handful of hours a month attending committee meetings, usually to discuss their pension top ups. Ever since then I ask any person collecting for charity if I can see a copy of the accounts (certified) to see just how much goes to the intended party. If you are going to donate, then do so locally
Most charities are just an Illuminati collecting pot and behind the issues in the first place in one way or another. Have you noticed the mantra of don't give to beggars you are encouraging the problem, don't give to charities, you are encouraging their behaviour and the worlds problems too.
There’s no reason to illegally steal money. Idiots will legally line your pockets. Just learn to milk the system legally. Get a few politicians in your pocket at the state level by giving them a cut. Easy!
ASPCA should be on the list. The exec get 500k annually. There is a long list of people getting 300k+ annually. Those staged rescues that run constantly on many channels makes a hefty profit for the ad agencies.
I actually just got off the phone with a Kids Wish Network rep. They were super pushy to get an immediate over the phone payment and even tried to make a larger donation saying that ," well these kids might not live long enough for a payment through the mail". Finally they agreed to send something through the mail. After 5 minutes of looking into them....I'm giving these scamers nada! Making money off of empathy for dying kids....I'm more sad than angry.
If you Think about how much money all over the world has been Donated to Cancer Research People like me and you do all kinds of Drives Running walking Skydiving etc and no Cure . Because the cash cow would die if three was a cure it most be millions or even more Billions a year collected so why would they have a cure. Greed that is all it is
A great place to donate is local schools - 0% of the donation goes on admin or staff as they're already covered. It helps local kids have better educational resources and opportunities. These are tomorrow's adults. Many will end up living near you and those who move away to bigger and better things will be inspiration to the generation after them. The youth of today are tomorrow's leaders and pioneers! :)
what a surprise, half of the charities on the list are cancer "research". With the amount of money the 1000s, (yes 1000s, over 600 just inside the U.K alone) of cancer; mainly for breast cancer, charities have raised, they would have had enough money to build a science center on the moon, send all their "scientists" to the facility and found a cure for all diseases. Its a lucrative business, they dont want to find a cure for cancer, there is to much money to be made. Money does not cure diseases.
"Charities" are scams devised by "legal criminals" to make money without having to do anything, much like government offices and the "law enforcement".
If you have done any research into the past about charities, you will see that they are all corrupt and self-serving. There are no REAL laws governing what a charity does with it's money......uh, sorry....YOUR money.
In reality, the hard truth is...........as long as a charity has helped at least ONE person of the type of person or people they claim to help, no matter how small or insignificant that help is, the government will not do anything.
Which means, ANYBODY can claim to be a charity, and rake in millions or billions of dollars a year...........and they only have to help ONE person per year to keep their charity status and be "tax free", keeping those millions for themselves.
So many charities are a hoax, money rarely goes where it's meant to and they seem to raise money to raise money crazy, these 10 listed are preying on the goodwill of people for worthy causes but I feel more and more our goodwill is running out
The Clinton Foundation, run by a rapist and a racketeer, and which sold the resources and secrets of the United States for personal gain. Google (Bing) Chappaqua, Chelsea’s wedding, Bill Clinton’s watch collection, the Clinton library, the list goes on and on. They both belong in a penitentiary.
Tvind, and its various front groups such as Humana People To People, are probably more corrupt. Several of their executives are wanted by Interpol.
Also, the Cult Awareness Network is a front for Scientology, which is corrupt in a different way.
I give to none of them they have all been found to be corrupt it’s a shame people want to help but can’t because of who the people are anyways charity starts at home give the guy standing in the cold with a sign your dollars at least you know it’s not providing a lavish lifestyle for some corrupt organization!
Take a look into Alcoholics Anonymous. Its a non-profit organization that also is a religious cult. The organization does not provide support for victims of harm done by members and collects money from the groups.
Peter Green men are just as culpable. If you guys don't want women getting abortions-then I suggest men step up and WEAR CONDOMS instead of bitching about it later when women get pregnant and don't want to raise a baby alone because their sperm donor boyfriends bail the second they hear the word "pregnant". It takes TWO people to make a baby-and the men involved are every bit as guilty.
