SCAM- Foundation for American Vets
I am generally a fairly laid back person if no one is dead, wounded too badly to keep up, etc, but at the moment
I AM PISSED AND WANT TO DO GRIEVOUS BODILY HARM TO SOME PEOPLE !!!
My lady got a telephone solicitation from the Foundation for American Veterans. We have a few local charities we support, plus Fisher House. I have coached her that you do not give ANYBODY a credit card number that YOU did not call in the first place. She agreed to a pledge- send me the paperwork, will send you a modest donation. They describe themselves as providing help for Vets in hospitals, care packages for GIs in Afghanistan, and medical equipment and clothing for VA hospitals.
Tonight, I ran them thru the computer. Yeah- right. Approximately SIX BLEENING PERCENT of what they collect goes to any sort of veteran's charity. 85% goes to professional fundraisers. What is left is divided just about evenly between admin costs, and salaries for the Director and his wife.
I am so angry at these jerks I am seriously considering calling in one of the few serious favors I am owed, and asking some folks in North Carolina to pay them a visit and improve the human race.
Run a Google for "Foundation for American Veterans" and see for yourself. If you spend time on any OTHER forum, please help pass the word.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
