Let’s say I handed you a $100 bill and the following list of charities. If I asked you to pick one to give the money to, which one would you choose?
American Association of the Deaf-Blind
National Veterans Services Fund
Children’s Wish Foundation International
Cure Alzheimer’s Fund
Breast Cancer Relief Foundation
Now before you make your choice, consider this: four of these charities are considered to be among the absolute worst charities in America.
These charities are shams designed to line the pockets of unscrupulous monsters who prey upon the charitable intent of others.
