    A lot of time the money raised doesn't always make it to the people they are donating to. A large portion of it goes to paying the people working for the company, advertising costs, etc

    I once worked for a similar company but quit after I discovered something like only 5% of donations actually made it to the people in need.


    Eta: some companies give much larger portions.

    There's been an inquiry conducted over some of the major charities and wh in found alarmingly low rates of distribution to actual charitable causes.

    I'll see if I can find a link.
