The average 'charity' is not about helping people, but about funneling money into the chairman's pockets
Approximately everywhere, institutions calling themselves 'charitable' are popping up where gullible people can pay money and they are told that money will be used to feed poor little children in Africa, drilling wells so they can drink, or even treat them for various illnesses. However, the true destiny of a 'charity' is to make sure that their managers don't starve, rather than into the actual purpose:
And quite usual, the money goes into the manager salaries, they do keep up with inflation:
To put things into relation, people who work in an industrial job usually make about a fifth of that sum, and their salaries didn't go up, and they don't work in so-called 'charitable' institutions. And the managers are not the only ones getting paid rather well:
However, that's not the only thing that siphons money away from the actual purpose:
And then, if everybody thought that it's only voluntary donations, forget that right away:
And from that money, as shown above, quite a bit lands in the pockets of the managers and the staff.
And alone that is grounds enough never to donate to any 'charity', either in the UK or in other regions where the money goes to fundraising organizations.
