Almost everyone is inclined to donate something towards a specific type of charity, especially if the cause is something that touches your heart. Whether it be children, cancer research or animals when you part with your money you believe that you are helping the cause and providing a little assistance for the people involved. It is a scary realization when you read the article on The Tampabay Times where there are various charities named and a list of the 50 worst charities in America can be found.
Not only do these charities appeal to the emotions of the person on the other side of the phone, they also obtain the donations by neglecting to divulge information on how the donation will be spent. When the books are audited there is less than 1% of the donations being spent on the cause! It is important to know which charities are just corporations soliciting your money under the mask of donations.
