Sad to see that most of the orgs on the list supposedly support children, vets, police and firefighters, and cancer research/victims.

The key thing is the ploy of brand diffusion - they mimic legit charities:

These nonprofits adopt popular causes or mimic well-known charity names that fool donors. Then they rake in cash, year after year.

This is just freaking evil:

To disguise the meager amount of money that reaches those in need, charities use accounting tricks and inflate the value of donated dollar-store cast-offs — snack cakes and air fresheners — that they give to dying cancer patients and homeless veterans.

I’d guess the elderly are the chosen marks. My mom used to fuss about all the solicitations she got in the mail for this charity or that, complaining that she already gave them money. That was the problem.

Glad to see that real journalism still exists in America today. Hey, Fox News & Chicago Sun-Times, you could learn something from this.

I wish someone would check out Carry the Load located here in Texas.

This is the bizarre variation of ‘freedom’ that the right wing is fighting for.

Here’s a direct link to the list

Glad to see no organization I’ve ever donated to on it.
