Grassroots Campaigns Inc. Took my hope, and dashed my belief in making a difference in kansas city, Missouri
*UPDATE Employee: Not everything on the internet is true
*General Comment: A mom's perspective...
When I got the job it was explained that I would go out with a small group and we would try to talk to people to get others interested in helping and encourage donations for the Feed The Children cause . We were also told that 90% of the proceeds would go to the charity. My first day I was given a goal of raising $50. I was also told I would make $8.90 per hour plus commisions. On my second day I found out what they said was not true!
My second day was a slow one for the entire group, no one really raised much money and when we returned to the office it was not a happy place. It was "explained" to us that if we didn't raise enough money each day how did we expect to get paid. I did not understand that since I thought the money we were raising was going to help people. It immedietly became clear this wasn't about doing good it was about money.
It was also strange on my second day we changed causes. First it was about Feed thd Children and then it was switched to helping victims in Japan without explanation of how that money was going to get to the victims. Again it was just about the money.
My second day was my last and since I've discovered this group is hired by organizations to go out and canvess. It really has nothing to do with helping. I was so dissapointed and still feel discouraged.
Bottom line if you want to really help the community make a difference stay away from Grassroots Campaigns Inc. they do not care about raising money that will go back in the community instead its about raising money for the people that hire them.
