Never donate to the Red Cross

I happen to know, from direct personal experience, that the Red Cross is entirely converged and totally corrupt, so it doesn't surprise me in the slightest to hear that the Red Cross is refusing donations in Louisiana unless they can profit from them:
“So as we are headed back home from the River Center in Baton Rouge volunteering our nursing services Dawn and I have come to the conclusion that neither of us WILL EVER volunteer or donate to the RED CROSS. The Red Cross basically takes over the shelters and starts refusing clothes, donations and various volunteer services UNLESS they are previously contracted. So what does that mean….well, 60 boxes of doughnuts were discarded this morning becuase the delivery vendor was not in contract, hot meals were refused becuase the entity providing wasn’t contracted, and medical supplies including medications were trashed for same reason. Clothes that were “donated” needed to be left on the street unless they were “furnished” by Red Cross. As of tomorrow, the shelter we were at will be completely over taken by the Red Cross other than the medical area because they couldnt have the actual room since LSU has a contract with state to provide medical care. Its sad when the military police were helping to “protect” the medical areas from the red cross when there are so many other issues at hand. Anyway, next time to want to donate or volunteer your services, do your homework.”
Don't ever donate to, or volunteer with, the Red Cross. They are fully SJW-converged and they have been for years. This is also why one should NEVER set up a non-profit. They are always quickly converged by the very people who have lots of time and are oh-so-eager to help.

If memory serves, the Red Cross was the same organization that "lost", hundred of millions of dollars that were donated to help the Tsunami victims of south Asia.

The great men and women that started the Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc, would be ashamed over what their hard work has become.

I don't pretend to know the details, but I have heard that the Red Cross is technically an arm of the U.S. government. Donating to them makes as much sense as donating to the EPA. Like PBS, they already have a claim on your money, enforced by a gun.

If the Red Cross has indeed become a de facto arm of the US government, that would explain their hyperconcern over contracting.

I experienced this myself with regard to the US Navy band, who were buying French horns, but not any French horns, they had already picked out exactly which ones they wanted. So I wondered, "Why don't you just buy them from the manufacturer, then?"

"Oh no, we can't do that," they explained. Had to be contracted. So they had this bid for a contract out, and were waiting patiently for the bureaucratic wheels to turn, and one day their French horns would come in. Overpriced, no doubt.

And meanwhile they had a hobbled horn section. Stupid. Death by red tape.

They're not too thrilled with praying either.
I cannot believe that the Red Cross did this to Capt. Clay Higgins, a folk hero here in south Louisiana.
A Red Cross spokeswoman confirms that the agency does have rules governing praying in its shelters, but says managers would have accommodated Capt. Higgins if he had approached them. Her response comes in a Baton Rouge Advocate story about how a lot of people in Louisiana, even the governor, have complaints or at least concerns about the way the Red Cross has been handling things here.

Yes, it's Rod Dreher. Because of the circumstances, I'm calling a cease-fire on him.

Norwegian Red Cross - spend more money on administration and activities asking for money - than any other such organization in Norway. The political correct leaders - do have very high salaries when compared to the Norwegian standards.

Look at their CEOs salary... 'nuff said

from snopes: The second worst offender this year is Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO of the American Red Cross... for her salary for the year ending in 2009 was $651,957 plus expenses. Enjoys 6 weeks - fully paid holidays including all related expenses during the holiday trip for her and her husband and kids. including 100% fully paid health & dental plan for her and her family, for life. This means out of every dollar they bring in, about $0.39 goes to related charity causes.

Red Cross is hopelessly corrupt. After 9/11 they were encouraging people to give blood, and I have no idea how many thousands of people went in to donate specifically thinking they were helping 9/11 victims.

This was purely a marketing ruse on the Red Cross' part, since it was immediately clear that there were few survivors who needed blood transfusions. The main cause of casualties was, IIRC, smoke inhalation. Blood products don't store indefinitely, so most of the blood that was donated in the patriotic fervor of 9/11 had to be disposed of as biomedical waste.

And they withheld cash donations solicited on behalf of 9/11 victims from the actual victims.

And in the 80's the Red Cross knowingly kept selling AIDS-infected blood without telling the public about it. We'll never know for sure how many lives they destroyed with their greed.

@39. The Salvation Army was converged, locally, by the NZ gov't. Because they had to agree to all the rainbow demands to get funding for alcohol abuse etc. Because the health care provider regulations don't care for religious scruples.

They generally have fought back... but always look at the paymaster, for he who pays you is your true customer.

But they don't pay their managers 600K, as the District Health Boards and other Gov't supported organizations do.

They denied it. Given the main donor center hours and the distance to them checking out in person isn't worth the effort, especially if they did something like move the pictures from somewhere prominent and placed them in the basement.

As far as blood donations go, please don't write off donating blood if you are eligible to do so. The only source of blood is humans.

Over 500 families without housing, power, sanitation - etc.. The Red Cross did not come because - the occupants were "too wealthy." Thank goodness the Salvation Army had no such qualms.

My late Paternal grandfather a WW2 vet hated the Red Cross because when he returned from Europe at the end of the war there was a red cross booth on the docks; where the ships were coming in and discharging the returning soldiers, that was SELLING coffee to soldiers.

Blogger Harold August 28, 2016 4:46 PM  

FYI, The Salvation Army is a Protestant religion, not a social organization. I actually discovered this in boot camp in 1973 because my best buddy in boot camp was one a church member. Salvation Army officers are their ordained clergy, and from what I understand, officers can only marry other officers. They are organized as God's Army. This is their mission statement- taken from their website, and they seem to be pretty good at following it at all levels: The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

SA is indeed a church, with their own church buildings, missions, clergy and schools. They are an outgrowth of the "muscular Christianity" movement of the mid-19th Century, based ont he idea that the Church Militant should be, you know, militant. By which they mean pseudo-military.
They used to drum up recruits with street corner brass bands in the poorer parts of town, which is is satirized in the play and film Guys and Dolls. Chesterton commented on them approvingly in some of his essays.
My mother-in-law used to work for one of their regional offices. Interestingly, the offices are fully converged. Homosexuality celebrated, Diversity is our Strength, liberalism uber alles, the whole nine yards. Exemplified by the fact that they would hire my mother-in-law, a full-fledged new-ager. In fact, she got more grief from the fact that she's a Republican than her reflexive anti-Christianity.
I don't know how that reflects in their teaching or ministry, but it is worrisome.

Blogger Cecil Henry August 28, 2016 5:17 PM  

These charities are business.

Many of them are known for pleading heavily for funds during disasters (especially those that pull on the heart strings of the public) and then NOT using most of those funds for the disaster.

Instead they redistribute most of the funds for others projects they have prioritized for their agenda. (Whether good or bad, this is done)

You may think you are giving to one specific cause, but in fact the charity will use it otherwise as they see fit. Indeed natural disasters often become fundraising opportunities for other underfunded causes that perhaps (or maybe definitely) you would NOT want to support.

The UNITED WAY, for example is pure anti-White SJW poison. Unicef, and many 'Christian' organizations like World vision have agenda's far beyond 'charity'.

Amen.

My experience with NP's is limited, but had to deal with one for a couple years that was an environmental "conservation" NP. The head actively bragged that his methodology was to repeatedly sue everything on the flimsiest pretexts he could find, until they gave up, or settled with him.

On one hand, I "get" conserving some of the coastal marshes, etc. that aren't wetlands only by the most pedantic reading of EPA regs, but he made it clear his interest wasn't in reasonable compromise with the needs of people, but extorting them until they gave up or settled.

My parents are liberals who donate a lot. As a result they get 10 lbs of mail every day, while I get two or three envelopes.

My parents were strong supporters of the RC until they discovered that some high-ranking RC staffers, people that they knew personally, went to South America to do some "disaster relief" after the Chilean earthquake in 1960.

Those staffers flew 1st Class, stayed in luxury hotels miles away from the disaster, and prevented a lot of rescue and other aid to the disaster victims, as it had to be "done right," i.e. through the Red Cross system, and they weren't in any hurry about it because they were living high on the hog. My folks were furious, and dropped those people as friends, publicly at a cocktail party. Never knew my folks could be so hard-ass; it impressed the hell out of me!

After that the Red Cross got nothing but expletives; though I still donate blood to that outfit- if there's a better place for blood donations, I'd love to hear it, but I don't know of any.

I've had lots of experiences with the Salvos and they are OK in my book. Did a lot of good work with alcoholics & drug addicts, and didn't force anything on anybody. They were strongly religious but worldly practical; good folks.

My mother told me stories about returning combat Vets from WW2 who despised the Red Cross, but loved the Salvation Army. The SA gave them whatever they had for free. The RC charged for everything - a cup of coffee, stamps and stationary for letters to mail home, etc.

I have never given them anything. I do give the SA something every Christmas.

A friend of mine used to be a big volunteer for the Red Cross. Moved to a new area, checked in and started helping, and quickly discovered that, upon driving an emergency truck with no brakes, that the people in charge of doing maintenance on their vehicles had been pocketing the money for years - and a bunch of other money besides.

He wrote letters to inform the people a step higher than the embezzlers and a step higher than that and to the Board - Elizabeth Dole was the President of the Red Cross at the time.

And of course, he got kicked out. And if he showed up at any Red Cross event and tried to volunteer to help, they called the police/security on him. They sent him a letter requesting he not attend because I quote, "If you attend any of our functions, you might attempt to serve."

Steer clear of any helping organisation with a logo.

Get involved in your local community. Work with people you know. If you don't live in Louisiana but want to help, work through your local connections to donate directly to a known family, or another local community network like your own, preferably with goods urgently required. If you have a usable skill, track down a local network like your own to offer help; and if requested go and do your thing. Don't turn up uninvited if you have no skill. Donate stuff.

Did I mention to stay way from any helping organisation with a logo?

Because a potential tool of the alt-right would be to create false flag non-profits that claim to support SJW causes, but instead uses the money donated by hipsters to pay their salaries, and then uses their salaries to fund alt-right causes. Since it's a scam, and SJWs are trying to scam us, why not scam them back?

Google setting up a non profit if you want to get into the details of it. I believe it is about the same as setting up a run for profit company, not all that tough but it does require a bunch of paperwork and record keeping.

So was Red Cross always a scam. or did they start off as good? When did things start to go bad?

I can tell you the salvation army has a long history with the Australian army, notable for things such as the sallyman driving out to the troop to give them a hot brew in Vietnam. They'll still show up in the damnedest places to hand out a tea and biscuit, for whatever donation you'll give

For an inside story on the tainted blood scandal's Arkansas connection, read the novel Blood Trail by Michael Sullivan (real name Michael Galster), based on his firsthand experience:

@Eskyman:

Most hospitals have their own blood donation program. Saves them the cost of having to go outsource their supply from others, not to mention insures the quality of the product. Unless there's a medical reason preventing it, hospitals prefer that the patient donate blood a few days prior to their surgery. During the surgery, they'll put the patient's own blood back into their body.

Most of my Dad's buddies are Vietnam Vets like him. Every one of them despises the Red Cross. Most of their donut dollies in Vietnam were making a fortune as prostitutes on the side. There was the standard charging for stale donuts and crappy coffee bit. Commanders bucking for promotion also "requested" their personnel donate to the Red Cross and if you didn't, you'd get screwed on your eval cause you brought the Commander's participation percentage down.

For what it's worth, I never saw one Red Cross type on any of my tours. Plenty of USO people though. My annual charitable donations go to Toys for Tots and a military museum or two. I vet the latter personally. If I find a gal in a leadership position, I'll pass. Either the organization's converged or she does what typical women in those positions do, build little petty empires that end up corroding the place.

The Red Cross youth organization was long ago completely taken over by leftists. Who then proceeded to take over the main organization and its money.

Aside from running aid as a racket, turning away aid that isn't on their list (businesses that pay for the privilege of being associated with the Red Cross), they are also infamous for destroying local businesses in the Third World. When the cameras target an area, the Red Cross moves in with food and equipment, so that local stores go bankrupt. The Red Cross looks good on TV, but after they're gone there's no economy left.

They could work out a way to work through the local businesses, but they don't. The "capitalists" are not worth their consideration, right?

Can't stress this enough. The only productive charities I saw during/after Katrina were individual churches and SBC-organized crews. Same now after the BR floods.

As always, the Church is to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the world. I don't trust anyone else.

FYI - apparently League of the South is taking donations for flood relief if you're looking for a local, non-converged organization.

Minor detail ignored in buss crash driver was illegal, "volunteers" were illegal day laborers. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/08/28/two-dead-dozens-injured-in-louisiana-bus-crash-illegal-alien-driver-wout-license/#more-120803 the bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, did not have a driver’s license and was not licensed to drive a commercial vehicle. A public information officer said he was from Honduras and in the U.S. illegally...The same faith-based charity that provided the volunteers relief effort, most likely also provided the illegal aliens with safe harbor – and it’s almost certain all of this was paid for with tax payer funds.

"As of Thursday morning, more than 855,000 primary ballots had been cast by mail. More than a quarter of those votes came from Floridians who had not voted in the last four primaries and another 20 percent from people who voted in just one of the last four primaries. In other words, these are not “likely voters” surveyed by most pollsters or targeted by sophisticated political campaigns."

REd Cross was founded by Florence Nightingale to provide nursing services to British during the Crimean War. She was simply appalled and heartbroken of the misery of wounded soldiers and volunteered to help, and to recruit others to help. All free of charge. Nightingale herself never took a half-penny from a soldier.
Yes, it was originally a good organization, but that was before the Civil War.

I don't usually comment, I mostly read here. But I've been a volunteer and have gone through some of RC training in my country. And I have to agree that it seems&feels more like scam than actual organization to help people the more you see of it. I've personally witnessed a lot of how they exploit people through their volunteer & blood donation business. Yeah a Non-profit, except for all the salaries the actual employees get and that's the way these organizations profit the people who exploit them..they twist the original idea and the money recklessly trickles to small circles and is spent without a care. Its relatively easy to find scandals about RC, there are so many about them. One example of such a thing of similiar kind was from my grandpa who was a finnish ww2 vet, he told me that a collection for veteran aid fund (done by the military door to door) amassed a big amount of money, but all that money disappeared in and none of the veterans ever got any. To this day even the more reputable veteran organization in this country keeps holding on to the cash and waiting for the veteran's to die. Most of these "non-profits" will take your money and pay their employees too big salaries (the salary gets higher the more high up the chain you go) and never deliver most of the money they are given and no one seems to really hold them responsible or audit how they spend their money. RC is especially muddy because every country basicly operates on their "own".

For fun you can check out if they list a way to resign from your "membership" at your country's red cross. I never could find even a mention so I just ignored their "bills". I bet Jean-Henri Dunant would be even more shocked to see what has happened to Red Cross than how shocked he was about 1859..

I never donate. When my mom was trying to get away from my dad- violent, documented, beaten into a coma, witnesses- not a false flag in any way- the Red Cross rep told her to take her beatings "like Jesus." She had better luck with the Mafia boss in town. ( Military station in Italy)
