Hey, didn't oprah already do that ?
hang on to your wallet whenever you meet a do-gooder

We need some serious reform of the tax exempt status of so called "non profit" organizations. First off, they should have no paid employees including officers. If these people were really do good ers than they should be donating their time.

I know of a few local non profits where the administrators pay themselves quite well, live in housing provided by the organization and drive very expensive near new vehicles which are also owned by the " non profit" organization.

You must be referring to several of our local fine churches that do this. Pretty good racket.

that's why there are so many non-profits in this town, it's a scam, the people that "run" things pay themselves administrative fees and bank. you are a sucker to give any of them money no matter what they profess to be doing with the funds. good point on all the churches is town, the pastor shakes down the rubes on sunday, throws the money in the air and whatever god don't catch, he keeps for himself.
