I then asked, OK so that means that Charity gets more money correct? If I give $100 to Charity A, then it would get $100 more than would normally be allocated to them and Charity B would have its money reduced by my (insignificant as a percentage) amount.

Their answer was "no". Both charities still get the same distribution its just that "my" money would only go to Charity A.

I said, thanks but no thanks and have given my money directly to the actual charities ever since, but only after vetting them.

FROM THE ARTICLE:

“Karan said that after his diagnosis, Naiman spent a lot of time researching charities.
One group that's benefited from his kindness is the Pediatric Interim Care Center, which cares for medically fragile babies suffering from prenatal drug exposure.
The group posted a tribute to Naiman on its website and said he donated enough money to pay off the mortgage on its building. He told the group in a letter that the center had been there for him when he needed to find a place for sick babies that were brought to him.

Again, what does this situation have to do with United Way being assholes? My employer stopped giving to United Way when it came to light how little made it to those in need. It literally has nothing to do with the guy in question and those shitting on him for giving to charity. The charities which he donated to are listed in the article and none mentioned above that were involved in scandals.

Sounds like those that don't appreciate a good deed are either jealous or don't have that amount of money to do a good deed. Or possibly both.

Donate blood and become an organ donor. The recipient can get 100% of their life back with your donation.

Sure, just make sure to steer clear of the ones making bank from your donation.

Seems to be good money in "charity" work.

Well, it's been a beautiful Christmas, and I'm hoping for a wonderful, caring, New Year for us all. Wish I hadn't read that post.



I'm a musician and teacher. Years ago, I was playing a jazz festival and the soundguy was ... ummm... more than slightly unfamiliar with... lessee.. .kind of a long list.. his equipment.. jazz ... the sound of real instruments... anything other than ear-splitting metal concerts (at least judging by the shrill, ear-splitting, noise hash coming from the monitors and FOH systems). The leader of our band, in total frustration during sound check, said,



"Those who can't do, teach... those who can't teach, teach gym. Those who can't teach gym, run sound." As a teacher, I still laughed at it.
perhaps you like your dog more only because he can't talk back. you know they make ball gags for the rest, right?

also, i'm thoroughly enjoying your oddly definitive speculation of my career path from a forum name that i've used since high school.

We have this situation in the UK too but it's also mixed with Eastern Block rich exiles, Middle Eastern rich folk, Chinese new money and old money English.

Life is like a tapestry... I have to work my socks off to make the damn tapestry..

Didn't mean to imply it did, just that, like this guy, you need to do your due diligence before donating money. Don't do it just because it makes you feel good, do it because you are sure it does good.

We know he enjoyed his life. Because he owned an FR-S.
We know he was a decent person. Because he had it in Blue.
