for organizations to have balloons, stickers, t-shirts,…especially designed to raise funds? Unless items are donated, It defeats the purpose. Do organizations deflate and depose of balloons properly to avoid killing wildlife? Why can’t they have a Eco-friendly fund-raiser? I ask this question after watching ACS Mother’s Day walk on a morning news program. There were thousands of pink balloons draped across the finished line over The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s steps. And what percentage of funds actually go towards research and helping victims? I’m leery when it comes to giving; I’m leery about where my money’s going, or not going. There has to be a better system for some 501 (c )ash cow organizations to handle their business. I do know of organizations that use their funds wisely, but they or far and in-between.
