I would find a way to give to the school or to a charity directly versus going through the United Way. Just trying suggest a better approach.
Man, what is it with people throwing the word "rape" around this board lately like it's no big thing?

Anyhow, I think you should suggest a good way to donate

Re: United Way VT Fund

I will make sure I never use the R word again. lol. As far as a suggestion as to who to donate to......I dunno. If you are talking about donating yearly to some organization then find one or two or several that you like and send you money directly to them. This assures more of the money gets to them. United Way takes 10% of all pledge money for what they call fundraising and administrative costs. payroll falls into this catogory. As for helping the families of VT. I have no idea. sorry to piss on everyones corn flakes then not give a better avenue. I would check their web site or call the school if the Mike Vick United Way is the only one then I guess you have no choice. but I have to imagine there are other avenues. perhaps even sending directly to the school somehow.

Some folks just don't get it? I just don't understand, thank you LORD.
In short, there are COUNTLESS ways to help the people that need it with NO OVERHEAD.

Pick and choose what your comfort level might be. Giving back to people that truely need it when tragedy strikes so close to home is a GREAT feeling. Do what you can when you can to help your fellow man, it will make you better person, thats what this GREAT nation was founded on.

GOD BLESS ALL THE FAMILIES, STAFF & LOVED ONES IN HOOKIE NATION!

Re: United Way VT Fund

The CEO for United Way Of America makes $504,000 per year then every other United Way organizations have a different CEO which most make aroun $200,000 per year. Does anyone live in Blacksberg and knows of any local club or church or bank collecting funds for the families. Then we would know that 100% of the money would get to the people who need them. Here's the link to waht the CEO makes and they actually do not get that bad of a ranking.
Charity Navigator Rating - United Way of America
