Do you know that the CEO of Shriners, the Imperial Potentate, makes $0.00 per year. How about that for a salary? We have 22 hospitals helping kids in Canada , the USA and in Mexico . His salary is matched by our Provincial Potentates income which is also $0.00 per year. So the next time you see a Shriner in a “Mall” selling whatever, give generously.

Ever wonder where that donation money goes?


Keep these facts in mind when "donating". As you open your pockets
for yet another natural disaster, keep the following facts in mind; we
have listed them from the highest (worse paid offender) to the lowest
(least paid offender).


The worst offender was yet again for the 11th year in a row is, UNICEF - CEO,
receives $1,200,000 per year, (plus use of a Rolls Royce for his exclusive
use where ever he goes, and an expense account that is rumoured to be well
over $150,000.) Only pennies from the actual donations goes to the UNICEF
cause (less than $0.14 per dollar of income).


The second worst offender this year is Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO
of the American Red Cross... for her salary for the year ending in 2009 was
$651,957 plus expenses. Enjoys 6 weeks - fully paid holidays including
all related expenses during the holiday trip for her and her husband and
kids. including 100% fully paid health & dental plan for her and her family,
for life. This means out of every dollar they bring in, about $0.39 goes to
related charity causes.



The third worst offender was again for the 7th time was, Brian Gallagher,
President of the United Way receives a $375,000 base salary ( U. S. funds),
plus so many numerous expense benefits it's hard to keep track as to what it
is all worth, including a fully paid lifetime membership for 2 golf courses
(1 in Canada , and 1 in the U. S. A. ), 2 luxury vehicles, a yacht club membership,
3 major company gold credit cards for his personal expenses... and so on. This
equates to about $0.51 per dollar of income goes to charity causes.


Fourth worst offender who was also again in the fourth spot, for every year since
this information has been made available from the start 1998 is amazingly yet again,
World Vision President ( Canada ) receives $300,000 base salary, (plus supplied -
a home valued in the $700,000 - $800,000 dollar value range, completely furnished,
completely paid all housing expenses, including taxes, water/sewer, telephone/fax,
HD/high speed cable, weekly maid service and pool/yard maintenance, fully paid
private schooling for his children, upscale automobile and an $55,000 personal
expense account for clothing/food, with a $125,000 business expense account).
Get this, because it is a "religious based" charity, it pays, little to no taxes, can
receive government assistance and does not have to declare were the money goes.
Only about $0.52 of earned income per dollar is available for charity causes.
Of the sixty some odd "charities" we looked at, the lowest paid
(President/C. EO/Commissioner) was heading up a charity group
in Canada . We found, believe it or not, it was......

Ready for this..

I think you might be surprised...

It is, none other than...


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. Which means about $0.93 per dollar earned,
is readily available and goes back out to local charity causes... truly amazing
.. and well done "Sally Anne"



No further comment is necessary..."Think Twice" before you give to your
Charity of choice as to which one really does the best for the most - or the
least for the most, for that matter.
Remember charity starts at home. Look after the people of this country.

theres big bucks to be made from the charity business. Every day there are more and more people on the street shaking their cans looking for the free lunch. I make my own choices about who i give to and as a result offend many.

Interesting chain email... but unfortunately it is mostly inaccurate since it's conception in 2005.

What is important to know is that, besides the Shriners/Masons, organizations such as the VFW, FPO, Elks, Moose, Eagles, Lions, Rotary all donate 100% of the monies the raise for charity, so, not only support them, but consider joining one to help strengthen them...
