Be Careful when Giving to Veteran's Charities

Fox News has a story on Veteran Charities and how many of the charities are simply scamming veterans. This is a story that hits home because I hope this Network grows to a point that I can donate significantly to Veteran Charities! Right now, all the profit from the Navy Vets Store will go to the Navy Relief Fund. The Advertising you see in the right-hand side-bar goes to defray the costs of the site and the promotion I'm doing for the site. I'm well, well, well, in the red on this, though! I think we'll need a few hundred members before we'll break even. I'm not in it for the money, anyways! I'd really just love to get this network off the ground to provide a place that's going to look out for Navy Vets! The bottom line is this: many charities are not there to provide ANY relief, they are simply ways to take people's money and pass it on to the people running the charity. Be careful and make sure you know how much of your money is really going to those who need it!
