One "charity" that really pisses me off is Susan g komen. We see the pink crap all over the place and they make hundreds of millions each year from all the Susan g komen branded stuff, and yet only 20% of their revenue goes to cancer research, if that much. Its just a marketing tool for other corporations that bribe them to get their pink ribbon on all that junk they sell.

not to mention they support corporations and products that are cancer-causing. Its a joke, preying on people's sympathy to make a buck

is this true, hollywood? i'm totally in the dark on this. with all the walk-a-thons and pink ribbons that have become ubiquitous, how can only 20% go to actual research/help? if accurate, that's every bit as immoral as police seizing financial assets without cause.
