Believe it or not, some large charity organizations are seemingly more like business companies then charities behind the scenes.This short video focuses mainly on certain cancer charity organizations and how much money is actually used on the research itself, how much profit is made, and how charity money is used for legal actions caused by large charities claiming copyright or trademark infringement of their slogans or logos, namely of the color pink used by one of the most popular breast cancer charity organizations.

I worked for an animal charity. I asked about the mountain of blankets, many of them high quality wool blankets that would cost a lot new. I was told, "Take what you want. (A well known charity which I won't name) did an appeal for blankets after an earthquake and got more than they wanted. We did a deal with them." The blankets were being used for dog bedding. The new dogs and those thought to be diseased used the blankets one night only then the blankets were burnt in an incinerator. I was asked to improve the design of the incinerator as they were having difficulty disposing of the used blankets.

How many people donating blankets to a very well known charity for use by earthquake survivors abroad would be happy to know their heirloom blankets were used for one night by a dog in England, then burnt?


In this video. 7:00

None of the proceeds from the NFL go to cancer research.


One point about research. I know a man who used different words to describe something that had already been done and got a grant to do it all over again.

I do not donate to cancer research for thee two reasons

1 nutrition is not researched as a cause or as a treatment for cancer and;

2. cancer research is crowd sourced but the patent will not be crowd sourced, it will be owned by big pharma who will charge top doller for product that cost them next to nothing to own.

Begin with your heart, however let your head have the last say. Specialists concur, pick a reason you're enthusiastic about. Be that as it may, Andrew Freeman, an advisory in San Francisco, likewise encourages eateries to pick a philanthropy that offers a characteristic cover with their customer profile. "In case you're a four-star eatery, you most likely would prefer not to pick somewhat known grassroots philanthropy with restricted bolster," he says. "Coordinating the philanthropy to your clients implies you'll show signs of improvement purchase in from the general population who shape your center business."

I don't donate to charities like this for the same reasons. At the moment in the Uk we are using the term "postcode lottery", which is because people in some areas can get certain treatment and medication on the NHS and a few streets away another person will be refused treatment. Its totally unfair of course. Considering the money that gets donated to such causes, the results of the research should be public property and a human right. With such a high mortality rate for cancer these days I feel its immoral to withold these treatments and benefit from others suffering, especially as the mojority of sufferers and their families are the ones responsible for raising the funds to research with in the first place.
I also dont believe that even half of donations to charities ever get to the destination they tell us their meant for. Charity is suppose to be a selfless act and a non profit organization. Gone are the days for that!
