99.998er: The 50 worst charities in America devote less than 4% of donations raised to direct cash aid. Some charities gave even less. Over a decade, one diabetes charity raised nearly $14 million and gave about $10,000 to patients. Six spent no cash at all on their cause, but of course that is legal.

Yeah but as soon as scientists build a machine that turns awareness into cures for cancer who'll be laughing then?

Thank you for your generosity.

Everywhere else in this world would consider this a deplorable crime...

Here in the US, it's called 'capitalism'...

browneye: Mother should have been charged with chid abuse because this poor kid is going to be farked up by all of this for the rest of his life.

or he'll have an awesome story to tell.  'Oh, so your parents told you Fido went to go live at a nice farm in the country where he's very happy?  I can beat that...'

I don't get it.....I mean....all those charities and stuff are always talking about RAISING AWARENESS.  I'm not sure how awareness helps fight cancer or whatever, but, certainly, this lady going around and raising awareness is a good thing, right?

I mean, sure, she raise $25k worth of awareness, which is far less than how much a CEO of a big charity for cancer gets....but she probably didn't do as good of a job either.  So it's kind of a toss-up.

Mother is cray cray, but maybe some counseling or meds could help her. Sounds like she has a disorder similar to 'munchausen by proxy'. She liked the attention for herself and kid more than the money, but at least the kid did get to go to Disneyland.
