Salvation Army

07 Dec

Well, it looks like after more than years, that the Kenyan will finally kill of this fine organization.   Founded in 1865, and coming to the United States from England in 1880, it was very effective during the Great Depression.  Now, it looks like it won’t be around for the Kenyan’s Depression.  They are already seeing a record number of family’s in need and it hasn’t even started yet! 

Do I feel sorry for those family’s?  Of course. 

Did they ask for what they are about to receive?  Absolutely!

    I have a healthy respect for the folks in the Salvation Army. Years ago (early ’70’s) they were feeding hot meals to flood victims in Louisiana at no cost. The AmeriKan Red Cross came into the area, forced the S.A. out and began selling sandwiches and bottled water to the disaster victims.


    Many years later I had the distinct pleasure of explaining to some Red Cross representatives at my door that this was the reason I would never donate anything to the Red Cross.

    This would be a bad event in my opinion, to lose the Salvation Army. They have put smiles on many distressed faces, and never sent the victims a bill afterwards.

      Red Cross can go to hell as far as I’m concerned. It reminds me of AARP.

    My sentiments exactly! The AARP are some relentless badgers, somehow they got my physical mailing address and for several months kept sending their “junk mail” trying to get me to join. After asking them nicely to stop several times I finally sent them an email threatening to file a complaint with the USPS. They wrote back saying I was off their mailing list and offered their humblest apologies.

    Lying communist bastards…

    red cross = a moneymaker for its investors

    salvation army = money donated is well spent on those whom need it

    Good points Wildflower. Charity Navigator rated Red Cross at 59.6% while Forbes rates Savation Army charitable commitments at 83%.

    The reason Charity Navigator did not have a rating for the Salvtion Army is because they do not rate religious charity organizations.

    Both organizations pay their chief executive officers a salary however the Salvation Army position pays less than half what the Red Cross pays depending on what web site a person researches. There is so much disparity in info between them all.

    also as you donated the blood, they make money at selling same blood including useful by-products…

    you wonder if it is a charity at all……

      I don’t donate blood. That’s how the liberals have done what they have.

      Several years ago some fellow Officers and I were going to donate blood for another Officer that required surgery. When we found out Red Cross was charging him for the blood that others were donating we refused to go.

        Put the Red Cross down. Out of business. Then save the SA.
