And she would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those meddling kids.

I hope her wish was to see the inside of a prison cell.

Months after becoming its leader, Woodley secretly awarded herself a $10,000 bonus in October 2019 that had not been approved by the board, according to criminal complaints unsealed Friday.
The bonus, which Woodley added to a list of legitimate bonuses earned by other employees, cost the organization $15,540 in all, police said.
Woodley also made 84 unauthorized purchases on an organization credit card that were for her personal use, totaling more than $23,000 over a 10-month span, the complaints state. Woodley allegedly did not reimburse the group for those expenses.


I wish I could be a better grifter

Stealing from terminally ill children... who does she think she is, Eric Trump?

Sorry no Trump pardon for you.

Her husband WAS an assistant basketball coach at wake forest I highly doubt they want there name associated with this mess in ANY way.

It takes a particularly dark and terrible soul to steal from the make a wish foundation.

I hope they throw the book at her and then send her to prison.

No, she's from Des Moines.


It was the soil.

Seriously.  I knew a kid growing up that basically ran a scam like that this and netted himself something like $5m in 2 years.  Apparently he never thought people would notice that much money missing in a short period of time.

It's always the greed that gets them. It's like those internet scammers you read about who get busted after like 10 years and $100M dollars.

If they just made a few mil off of a bunch of people and quit, they'd probably get away with it. But when the number of people and amount of money gets that big, the cops can't ignore it anymore.

Maybe she did the math and gave herself a big enough bonus to get 10K after taxes.

Not surprised. Make a wish is feel-good hype for the local TV news cameras, but nothing of substance. It's predicated on the idea that a dying kid would/should want some kind of Willy Wonka experience as their dying wish, rather than just going on living. And what about long term medical expenses? Funeral costs? Never mind that, we put a sick kid in the Batmobile! Our work here is done!

As a payroll professional, my guess is that it was set up so that the organization paid all the taxes on it, a process known as "grossing up".

I assume if it's a charity, someone at the head has been arrested.  If not yet, down the road.  I help people, not businesses.  We have a government for that.

That man has had to deal with some sh*t.

I wonder, how much brain surgeries cost, Probably ain't cheap.
I wonder if it was financial hardship that set her off.
Doesn't make it right.

But, it make me wonder.

Who gives a fark about kids? Stop having them.

Someday groups will learn you CAN NOT trust individuals with large sums of money, rich or poor. Ethical or criminal because the temptation is too great.

It doesn't mean anything to you, but the sick and dying kids are thrilled with the events.  I know it's Fark, but people should still do something cool for those afflicted with health problems.

I wonder why she didnt just say one of her kids were sick, then pocket the dollars.  But I'm stupid at crime, also.

As someone who volunteered at RMHC, and has dealt with terminally ill children, from the deepest depths of my heart... fark you for trashing a charity you obviously know nothing about. Most of the "wishes" the fulfill aren't on TV, aren't for any sort of attention, and are purely about giving kids who have a very limited number of days left a few more good ones. I dunno what he fark has gotta be wrong with someone enough to make them so jaded and cynical as to attempt to drive down the donations of a charity that largely spends its money on taking terminally ill kids to amusement parks without any commercial interaction at all, and even most of those celebrity interactions you see are legitimately free and not paying any sort of fees or even travel in many cases at all, but Jesus Christ man, take a few minutes for introspection and figure out what's so goddamn wrong with you that you've found yourself cynical and jaded that you're on a forum trash talking farking Make-a-Wish of all things.

I'm not mad, but fark dude, that's a level of sadness that I've never seen before on Fark, even from legitimate trolls.. get help.
