Amos Quito: themasterdebater: Sorry, did someone forget that a non-profit is a business like every other business?Actually, the non-profits tend to be much more profitable.
Pray 4 Mojo: This is why you don't donate money to these relief groups... instead you just go wherever the disaster is right after it happens and dive around looking for people you can help.Trust me... it's the best way. They only ask that people stay away to maintain their monopoly on the relief industry.
Kencyr: That's the way the Red Cross operates. The key is preparedness: Have all the necessary equipment and supplies ready in advance of the disaster. Use the money from the previous disaster relief fund-raisers for this event and use the money gathered by Sandy fund-raisers for the next (and future) events.//Wonders how many times he's read this article in some format or another.
maddogdelta: Wow... there is a whole lot of stupid in this thread....let's see... Storm is coming, what do we do? do we send aid to people right now and pay for that with funds we have right now? Well, that is how the Red Cross usually does business.After the storm hits, people send money.Great! But the RC already paid for the aid they sent to Sandy victims. What do they do?use the cash to pay for the next emergency you farking retards!
