the sick sad reality of these disasters is most of your donations will most likely never ever get anywhere near those impacted...

in #life4 years ago (edited)

by the time charities """"" organise """"" their ''' funds ''' and start to distribute some of the donated wealth, how much will those who need those money charitable donations ever see ???

Not sure? , check out down town haiti after a huge earthquake about ten years ago...

so . . .

dig deep for that = what ; 18% tax write off or whatever it really is after it is calculated into your yearly taxations re-assessment , charities really NeeD YouR HarD earned dollars and truLy who gives a flying FLIck about disaster victims ?

Right ???

All too common of a problem. Upvoted and resteemed. Some charities, do get a decent portion of the donations to where they are supposed to go, but many are a crock of horse doo doo. Thanks @crok for mentioning Haiti, I won't go there because people will blame me for getting too political. Many will blame me for taking sides in a false division.

hello fellow steemian , personally i do not even care about politics or geo-regions when rich arze-wipes R kosey and average nobody's are ignored as worthless pieces of garbage...

personally i will ALWAYS take trailer trash over sum worm swallowin piece of sewerage flotsam every single time if the slime ball is wearing the pathetic clothes of respectability, like a business suit ...

crime lords R crime lords no matter what zip code they slither out of like some sort of deformed malignant parasitic worm . . .

oh not sure i gave the correct impression . . .

those who you maybe think you envy or trust ???

= then your a retarded idiot ! ! !

True.
Most of those "donate for Africa" charities are a scam. Many African countries are developed with houses, companies, towers etc yet the media is always showing some poor malnourished kid in the middle of a desert with flies on his eyeballs to deceive the western world and make millions in donations.
Even the ones who do send the money end up feeding the corrupt people in charge of the disbursement here.
If Africa got to utilize even 10% of those donations, power outage and malaria deaths would be a thing of the past.

donations are important to the middle "men " to siphon off part of a percentage as the money flows along to the end recipients . . .

those poor people in down town haiti, hurricane katrina and Puerto Rico . . .

those in power have perverted democracy for greed ...
