March of Dimes Established by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt (1938)

The March of Dimes is a US charity whose mission is to improve the health of babies. It was founded with the goal of eradicating polio, one of the most dreaded diseases of the 20th century, during the tenure of President Roosevelt, who himself contracted what was thought to be polio in 1921. The national, nonpartisan organization initially raised funds for research by urging the public to contribute a dime to the effort and came to be called the March of Dimes, but its original name was what?

What a joke!
The March of Dimes
uses about 10¢ of every $1 you contribute for actual charity 10% of your giving...the other 85¢ is slated for salaries, advertising, operational costs, etc., as most charity orgs.(I bet F.D. Roosevelt is turning in his grave!)

American Cancer Society's CEO has a yearly salary of 1 million dollars?? The Red Cross is another joke!
Do the Math!

Good charities are: The Salvation Army and Rotary Club International (of which I am a member), to name a few, actually use over 90% of donations for charity. There are other good charities to give to...do your homework.

If you want to give to a charity, check them out first!
I don't make this stuff up...google it, but don't ask the charity website what they give, ask consumer watchdogs for truth in giving...you'll be shocked.
