Have You Donated Money to One of America's 50 Worst Charities?


Because I have a feeling a bunch of people are about to get reallllly mad.

CNN partnered with the Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Reporting to showcase the results of their year-long investigation to identify America’s worst charities, and it’s super fucking depressing.

The fifty worst charities are a hodgepodge of squandered do-goodery, with the number one spot being taken by Kids Wish Network, which raises millions of dollars in donations in the name of dying children and their families, and allegedly spends less than 3 cents on the dollar helping kids.

People who rip off people (or animals) in need are just the lowest of the low. I don’t know what else to say except I hope this shuts down those shady-ass do-baddery bullshiteries. Until then, hopefully Charity Navigator can make sure we’re not just throwing our hard-earned ducats into Scrooge McDuck’s money pool. (Actually, that’s probably a better use of funds than donating to some of these assholes.)
