The holidays are around the corner, and with the festivities comes the time of year that people are taking charity and the less fortunate into consideration.

Many people question the wages of CEOs and directors in charge of charity organizations. It’s a real eye opener for those of us who donate to really be aware of what some charitable executives are taking home. In some cases, more than a $1 million per year.

A list should be published each year showing charitable organization CEO salaries. This would show everyone who donates where their money is going, and what percentage is going to the boss.

People like to have a choice. Our donations are not given to help with well-paying jobs, they are to assist those in need. After all, these are charity organizations. Think about this before you donate. Investigate. We do not want to make the rich richer, we want the less fortunate to be happy.
