Yep. Times like these are when the crooks and opportunists come out.

I thought BP would pay all of their lost income and if they don't Obama said he would kick some ass. That made me feel much better about the situation. CRR if you can find a better link let us know.

I check several companies that rank charity groups and none of them showed anything for celebrities for charity. Maybe I typed something in wrong but I could not even find them on their list of charities. I wonder whats up with that.

Guys, this has got to be the worst planning for an official announcement ever. Here is the New Orleans Saints official website announcement, and everything looks legit, but wow, it seems bogus when you poke into it...

you can also go to nfl.com, pick the saints home page, and they have a link to this page.

but the link they give doesn't work. Really someone needed to put a better web package together for this...

I don't donate to any charity if I cannot look them up on any of the charity rating guides. I don't care if its $1 or $100 I want to know how much of the money actually makes it to the cause.

Like I said, it looks legit to me - the link left off the www, and that causes the untrusted connection error - HOWEVER, for an NFL team project it was very poorly put together and they should have used a respected charity organization like you say, rather than this one.
