I quit giving to the "International" Red Cross when they solicited millions for the fires in California a few years back and refurbished their offices instead of helping people. Then there was that debacle over all the millions they raised for the victims of 9/11 that magically didn't get to the victims. Now they're out there on Staten Island offering hot chocolate and cookies instead of blankets and such. I guess hot chocolate and cookies are cheaper, huh? The guy running the red cross makes over half a million a year. I don't see where they do much good here in America except take our money.
