There’s always someone ready to take advantage of another’s misfortune, often while wearing a pious expression on their faces. Here are two bad charities:
Sean Hannity claims to support our troops, endorsing a charity called Freedom Alliance that supposedly pays tuition for the children of fallen soldiers. What they don’t tell you is that ‘overhead’ sucks up at least 80-90% of the donations. Hannity will be riding a nice limousine to accept a community service award…
Scenar Health is one of those companies that markets a Radio Shack gadget called a Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator. Just the name gives it away: it looks like quackery to me. Would you believe they are planning to go to Haiti to “help”, and they are asking for donations? Don’t. They are at $0 so far, let’s keep it that way.
I think it would be basic human decency if the con artists could just stay away from areas that need emergency relief, at least.
