Since everyone here has helped to make some really good discussions, I figured I'd pose this question to the group of you. My organization (Juvenile Diabetes Cure Alliance) believes people donate to charities with the idea that the money going towards a cure ( mainly due to the way lots of charities advertise), and as such a large amount of our work is going to involve getting major charities to change their advertising and spending habits.
But of course, there's no accounting for everyone. I figured I'd ask you guys if any of you had ever donated to a charity, and why? What did you think it was going to? Or did you not care as long as it went towards something that improved living with diabetes?
We're trying to see where people stand on this so we have a better idea of what to try and get major charities to reform. Any and all responses, as usual, are extremely welcome.
