This will no doubt blow Maxella's mind, but I completely agree with him here. Immediately after the 9/11 attack there were fund raisers all over the
place (including one massive telethon with big name stars) and I myself donated $50 to the Red Cross. Later it comes out that only part of the money
was going to the victims and their families- a portion of it was going to support the Red Cross' own overhead, including buying a new phone system for
their headquarters. It made quite a lot of people (including myself) livid. I recall hearing about one charity a few years back in Switzerland
(unrelated to 9/11) that only delivered 20 cents out of every dollar collected to the recipients. The rest went to their own overhead.
Let's face it, things like this have been coing on in charaties all the time. It's just that we either don't know about it or we don't want to
