The other day, Barb got a call from a group called the "Childhood Leukemia Foundation" and they ask for a pledge. She plegded to them, but when she got the notice for payment she asked me about the charity. I didn't know anything about them, so I found out about them by visiting Charity Navigator. What I found out about this group, was that they spend 60% of the money that they raise on fundraising and only 32% on program expenses. So we didn't send them any money. Visit http://www.charitynavigator.org/ before you give!
It remains to be seen, if I have anything useful or interesting to say
