So You Think The Red Cross Does What? .....Sorry. Guess Again!
From Newsday (Sept. 27, 2005):
"The (American) Red Cross reports it spent $111 million last year on fundraising alone. Its fundraising vastly outruns its programs because it does very little or nothing to rescue survivors, provide direct medical care or rebuild houses. After 9/11, the Red Cross collected more than $1 billion, a record in philanthropic fundraising after a disaster. But the Red Cross could do little more than trace missing people, help a handful of people in shelters and provide food to firefighters, police, paramedics and evacuation crews."
What Does The Red Cross Actually Do?
