Default If this country is going to make it....

we need to do what ever we can to work together. What's going on in Texas with people coming from all over this land to brings boats and support to those in need. Their actions to help others is renewing my faith in man kind....

The video below is from the web site Infowars.com, they are running the video I'd like you to see.

I donated money to Samaritan's Purse and the American Red Cross for the Hurricane Harvey disaster, and encourage others to do so if they have the means. If a million people donate just $1.00, that's a million dollars.

CEO of the ARC is reported to get $400,000 yr pay. I am sure there is more set aside for beanies.

I ended up giving to the Louisiana Cajun Navy, Send Relief, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and the Houston Independent School District. The latter has been feeding those in need and have pledged to give the kids in the system free meals for a year. They are currently asking for needed items for those affected by Harvey.

I have read that all (100%) of the money given to Samaritan's Purse goes towards what it is intended for. I intend to give to them this week after my paycheck direct deposit hits my account.

I do know that 100% of money for hurricane relief (or any disaster) given to The Salvation Army ... 100% goes to that cause. They cover admin costs from other funds.

I know someone posted, on mil dot com once, the reported salaries of the top national leaders of various "non-profit organizations" and The Salvation Army national leaders ain't get'n rich.

The Salvation Army is the fourth largest charity with 82 cents of every dollar donated going towards program services. The average charity spends only 75 cents ...
