    I dont think its a misunderstanding. But now, like ROMT has just said, what do we do? The wounded warriors have suffered enough and they need us. Do we give up on them because of the stupidity of the CEO of this organization? Is this org. bad enough to pull the plug on? I am sure they are seeing a huge drop in their donations today because of this.

    The guy is succesfully runing a $ 71 Million Dollar Business. I don't think that $300 K is out of line. Sure, they spend a lot on fundraising but they seem to be getting a return. Spend Money to Make Money.

    Call it what you want DD, but most charities that are of any size are a business and must necessarily be run as such.

    If you want a truly altruistic Charity, do what I do and support the Hell out of "The Salvation Army". They are huge, yet their leader makes a pittance.

    One idea is to see if you can contribute on a local level instead of a corp. level. Also you cant judge a whole corp. for one persons remarks. If you contribute that makes you a stock holder in the company. Start a movement with other contributers to remove the CEO for cause.

    Wana bet.
    My mom used to manage the Salvation army here in Sioux Falls SD.
    Just one of the things they are GIVEN, is $250,000 to buy a house. not to mention the thousands a month for the rest of there life. Just for siting behind the desk doing nothing, exept enjoying being called Major.
    It's the managers that do all the work. The major's just take the credit, and the big pay for it.
    Do they help out the comunity, yes. but there know better then WWP or the red cross.IMHO.
    like I said my mom used to run the place, here.

    Thank You guys for all the input. When I first read this I was upset as I am an "advance guard" member giving automatic donation monthly. But after reading all the input I think I will just let it ride for now as I have seen much of the good that Wounded Warriors do and even if just over half gets there at least it is doing good for the most deserving people I know of.

    I have never been in the service but have the utmost respect and admiration for all branches of the service along with first responders, police and other public servants, many of which do it on a volunteer basis.

    Carver, I'm sorry for the way that came out. Entirely too offensive.
