I'm surprised "Charities" is not a category on this report.

Recent news show strong congressional criticism of Red Cross on how they used the money people contributed for the 9/11 WTC disaster. If you contributed, and you thought your money would go towards the victim's families and/or rescue efforts, think again.

Red Cross used a large part of these contributions for its own overhead costs and "reserves for future disasters".

I am more surprised at how my father, a WWII veteran, was NOT surprised about this. To this day he, and others from his battalion, hold a sour grudge against this organization. Why?
Because while stationed in Belgium fighting the Bulge, the Red Cross would charge them for food and other services!

Rip-off Report always had a category for Non-Profit Charities. It's located under the Topic of Outrageous & Popular Rip-offs.



Rip-off Report has been actively campaigning since 9/11/01, first for the Red Cross to account for the funds collected for the victims of the disaster, which resulted in the creation of the Liberty Fund. Dr. Healy was fired because she cooperated with our suggestions.



We are now in the process of recruiting Congressmen and have asked the Attorney General to investigate the misappropriation and/or mishandling of these dedicated funds. Please see our earlier reports.
