We've got a stockpile of money for breast cancer research. It's being siphoned off by an outlandish amount by AIDs research, a generally preventable disease. Now you know where to walk.

Uh... how much of the money is going to charity, and how much is going to pay for his food, room, and board while he gathers material for his photography book, and how much of the money from his book and blogging is going to the charity?
Just little questions the stupid reporter might wish to have answered before begging readers for money.
Right now, unless the kid is paying for the trip himself, it's sounding pretty scammy.

100% of the money I raise is going to charity. The Breast Cancer Society has provided me with 100.00 dollars a week on a prepaid card since I started my walk. That money goes towards food, gas, and lodging for two people. That has helped fund the trip, I have paid for everything else out of my pocket.
