SUNGEVITY San Francisco /Carolin Bennett from Amazon Watch
Sungevity does business with Amazon Watch/Caroline Bennett and this woman promotes her own personal artist career on the NGO Amazon Watch Facebook page. This is misappropriated monies when it comes to public donations to Amazon Watch. Caroline Bennett also uses images, children's poems or anything that consists of her "work" with Amazon Watch to promote her own photo exhibitions, her own personal website and her own personal Facebook Page. This is very inappropriate.
Why are people giving money to Amazon Watch when the monies are, in my opinion, seriously misappropriated. Several times on the Amazon Watch page Caroline Bennett has posted information about her own personal artist events those personal artist photographs were made possible by the public funding of an NGO called Amazon Watch. I am not funding Amazon watch so that Caroline Bennett can take photographs *for Amazon Watch and then use those same photographs to promote her own personal Facebook page, website and photo exhibition events. There should be a clear and decisive line drawn between Caroline Bennetts personal work and the Amazon work. She gets paid by the public funds from Amazon Watch I dont think the public would choose to fund Amazon Watch and allow Caroline Bennett to travel to exotic places, take a few photographs on our dime and then cash in on it by allowing her to create, establish and promote her own personal platform with the very photos and work she does for AW.
Amazon Watch must not allow this to continue as it is a violation of integrity and principle and the fact that this has continued ought to be examined with close scrutiny as to where else AW funds are misappropriated. Caroline Bennett, if you would like to promote your own photo career - may I suggest that you travel on your own dime and take photographs in various places in the world on your own dime and not the publics. Even if the photos taken by Caroline Bennett were *not funded by the pubic funds of Amazon Watch - which it is - Caroline Bennett should not be promoting herself and posting notifications about her various personal "artist" events and exhibitions on the NGO Amazon Watch Page - this in itself is very weird, highly irregular and poses a serious conflict of interest.
