Donations or Not

Seems like we receive almost daily requests for monetary donations to some “charity” only to find out that only a small percentage actually reaches the actual charity. A lot of different hands gets a piece of the funds and the collection process is a for profit business.

As a result of this, long time ago, I decided that instead of money I would contribute equipment and knowledge (volunteer) to a few charities. My real contributions are event coordination, event communication and equipment (ham or commercial).
