Why I don't donate to the Red Cross

The Red Cross has a wonderful past in helping others. Unfortunately, they have one of the highest overheads of any relief organization (something like 54 cents on each dollar). If you're wondering why...here's on reason. Yup, baseball statuettes. Your donation dollars at work.

The Salvation Army has one of the lowest overhead rates (I believe its around 18 cents to the dollar), so I kinda like them a lot better.
