Maybe I Was Too Extreme in My Cynicism - Probably Not!


As you well know, I have frequently doubted the motives of the organizers of “education reform” groups such as B4Kids and Students First.
At times, after writing these articles,  I  began to question my own cynicism.
“Maybe I was being too extreme in my suspicions?”
Several days ago, the flyer below was sent to me.
Any trace of self-doubt has since disappeared!

********************************************
As you open your pocketbooks for the next natural disaster, please keep these facts in mind:

The American Red Cross President and CEO Marsha J. Evans' salary for the year was $951,957 plus expenses.

    





The United Way President Brian Gallagher receives a $675,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.



UNICEF CEO Caryl M. Stern receives $1,900,000 per year (158K) per month, plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE. Less than 5 cents (4.4 cents) per donated dollar goes to the cause.

PS
There are some worthy organizations however:

The Salvation Army's Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization. 96 percent of donated dollars go to the cause.
