  2. Please, I make an honest appeal: B.J. Clinton and Bush the war-criminal-turned-good-guy are not in this because they care about Haiti – only their own tarnished legacies. And money. This will not help the people of Haiti. If you do indeed care to help, our money is much better off donated to Doctors Without Borders.

    PS You might want to do A little research and spread the word about the the US/UN have taken control of Haiti; and by what means this earthquake might actually have been .

    I;m not a cynic or conspiracy theorist, I’m being realistic. It’s all .

    I’m not a cynic or conspiracy theorist, I’m being realistic. It’s all WAY TOO CONVENIENT:

  4. Dan, this might answer some of your concerns (from the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund) :

    What organization is the recipient of my online or mailed donation?

    Donations made through this website or mailed to the office of President William J. Clinton are made to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund of the William J. Clinton Foundation. One hundred percent of the donations received by the Clinton Foundation go directly to relief efforts. Contributions made to office of President George W. Bush are made to Clinton Bush Haiti Fund of the Communities Foundation of Texas. One hundred percent of the donations received by the Communities Foundation of Texas go directly to relief efforts. Both Foundations are public charities exempt from income tax under section 501(c)3 and eligible to receive tax-deductible, charitable donations.

  5. Well what were you expecting it to say? “10% goes to Haiti, we keep the rest?” And how do we know that they don’t use contractor friends for “relief efforts” who profit handsomely? IMHO – Do not donate to a couple of criminals just because their website is reassuring.

  6. According to Charity Navigator, the Clinton Foundation puts 94.7% of their funds in to program expenses (as opposed to admin and fundraising). The Communities Foundation of Texas puts 91.6% into program expenses.

    The Clinton Foundation spends 2 cents on fundraising, to raise a dollar and the Communities Foundation spends 1 penny.

    Not that I doubt the credibility of Salon.com or youtube.
