    This has been going around for some time and is a little old. I believe the the Red Cross CEO has changed. Also, the UNICEF stuff is way off base. Forbes keeps a list of charities and there efficiency.

    According to them (Forbes, not me) both the Salvation Army and Ducks Unlimited are both less efficient than the Red Cross.

    """According to them (Forbes, not me) both the Salvation Army and Ducks Unlimited are both less efficient than the Red Cross."""

    The only question I have here.

    How much do these organizations spend advertizing in Forbes.

    I do believe that the one that spends the most in advertizing will be found to be the most efficient!

    Check out the animal rights industry if you want to see a charity scam.
