Hey Robin,

Big fan of your work and your approach to being a fully awake person living in the 21'st century.

Followed the links down the rabbit hole and found this in the comments to Zennie's blog:


You can be assured that we honor donor intent and will spend every cent with our donors’ wishes in mind. We are proud of the fact that 91 cents of every dollar raised for Haiti will go to help the people of Haiti; only .09 cents to sustain our operations, which is best practice in the non-profit arena.

The reason we have not spent all the money raised for Haiti yet is because we want to spend it in a thoughtful and responsible manner to meet immediate needs for food and water, but also longer term needs such as shelter and sanitation. We are working with other aid organizations to develop a comprehensive plan that makes the best use of the donations entrusted to us. We are actually spending the money very quickly in Haiti compared to other relief operations. In the first month alone, we have spent or have in the pipeline almost one-third of the $255 million donated. By comparison, we raised $581 for the Indian Ocean Tsunami, spent $110 million in the first 6 months of the response and the rest over the next 5 years on longer-term programs.

It might be spin, it might not be, but I think it is important that regardless the charities are held accountable for the money they collect. It is important to ask the question and follow up. I miss real investigative journalism.
