The truth about the Red Cross IN RECENT years, the image of the Red Cross has been tarnished. The worst scandal came after the September 11 attacks, when it was revealed that a large portion of the hundreds of millions of dollars donated to the organization went not to survivors or family members of those killed, but to other Red Cross operations, in what was described by chapters across the country as a "bait-and-switch" operation. Recently, long-simmering concerns about the Red Cross' disaster relief operations were expressed by Richard Walden, of the humanitarian group Operation USA, in the Los Angeles Times--prompting a vitriolic response by the Red Cross. But these recent scandals are nothing new for the Red Cross. In fact, the whole history of the organization is one gigantic scandal--stretching from its racist policies toward African Americans to its corporate mentality toward human beings.

22 Must-Circle Nonprofit Bloggers and Resources on Google+ I joined Google+ a few months ago as an individual, but it hasn’t been until the recent launch of Google+ Pages that I began investing time in the exploring the Google+ community and tool set. Google+ is a bit more complicated than Facebook or Twitter, but already a significant source of traffic to this blog, and like most communities that get a lot of initial buzz, the growth rate of new followers is exponentially much faster during the early adoption phase. It’s definitely been worth the time investment thus far. There are many other early adopters blazing a trail through Google+ and below are 22 that are useful to nonprofits and worthy of a Google+ Circle all their own. That said, it’s worth noting that Google+ Page admins can add other pages to their circles, but page admins can only add followers of its page to their circles. In other words, people must first add your page to their circles before you can add them to your circles.

Buy Nothing Project - Local - Orléans Star Members of the Buy Nothing Project-Orléans sector opened their trunks to other members and to the public for a garage sale. However, the difference about this garage sale is it didn't cost a dime. This is branched from the mission of the group: return to a different model of gifting. "The side goal is to minimize the waste going to the landfill, and reducing carbon footprint," said Jessica Llewellyn, a member.

For-Profit Solicitors Take Biggest Chunk $ National Veterans Service Fund notes on its website that "war does not end on the battlefield." Instead, the site goes on to say, American veterans and their families have been left without the help they need to overcome critical health and psychological problems at home. National Veterans Service Fund says it offers guidance to veterans to help them qualify for aid they otherwise would go without. It also touts the "limited medical assistance" the charity hands out to needy veterans. Those promises have helped persuade donors contacted over the phone and in mailers to give $70 million over the past decade.

Guild it and they will come! Mother Nature does not plant straight rows, and she most definitely does not plant whole acres of just one type of plant, spaced exactly eight inches apart, with absolutely no other plants allowed to grow anywhere nearby... A plant guild may be defined as any group of plants which support each other while growing near each other. "Guilding" is the act of intentionally placing plants to grow near each other so that they may help to provide for each other's needs, thereby creating a more healthy and diverse farm ecosystem and also making less work for the farmer....(that's right folks, I said LESS WORK for the farmer, meaning LESS weeding, fertilizing, LESS pest managementalizing, etc.... however, do allow for a little more harvest time, due to the bit of extra time it may take to separate crops during harvest... a well planned guild will yield all year 'round, providing food, seed and compost crops for farmers, wildlife and microorganisms alike.

Sham Cancer Charities Four cancer "charities" and their operators have been charged with bilking more than $187 million from consumers. The Federal Trade Commission, along with each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, says the charities claimed to be providing assistance to cancer patients, but the donations were in reality benefiting only "the perpetrators, their families and friends, and fundraisers."
