WDT: United Way Tries New Technique to Raise $$$

Photo: Brian Dwyer
All of the usual fund raising gimmicks had been used, so it was interesting to see a new approach this week. Instead of pledges for a run or a dunking booth, volunteers rapelled off the five story Key Bank building to benefit the local United Way.
     This was an innovative and different approach and likely attracted more attention.

Only problem is the united way does not distribute too much of the wealth it takes in,more of it goes to high up officials in the organization and more fundraising.

I wouldn't give a dime to the United Way. Its CEO compensation is 1.2M. That is obscene for a charity. I'm no chump for some fat ass exec.

Well,to be fair,it is probably tough to live on only 1.2mill a year when you are used to living high on the hog.
