I don't have an answer. more of a question. I joined a donation website, so that I could receive donations to save my home. (I Lost my job of 15 years and have no income) desperate.
My site has a paypal donation button, but, I do not receive any donations through it. Only emails from people in other countries trying to get my personal information. I am assuming after 2 weeks that joining this particular donation site was a huge error.
I also receieved a lot of nasty emails from people saying that I am trying to scam them. I don't get it. What is the difference between donating money to an individual and the United way?, Red cross or the Salvation Army?
I can say that, at least 100 percent of the money I would get in donations would go to exactly what I need to use it for, and not
just 5 percent, while a corporation with high paid executives pockets the rest.
I understand that money is tight. but, if people can donate to these charities on a window of 5 percent of the money going to the people who need it...Why would they not doante to a person or orginization that pays out 100 percent?
It's very sad, the millions the big charities get. very sad.
