Sorry. You might want to read this and see exactly who you raised money for: http://www.startribune.com/business/88973042....
It is an atrocity to tug the heart strings of many good hearts, it is unacceptable to use the misfortunes of illness to profit from and it is the ultimate betrayal of humanity and the human spirit to violate this type of trust in my opinion!

CEO PAY WATCH ST. JUDE MEDICAL INC.
Daniel Starks, chairman, president, CEO
Total compensation:$15,949,477 for the year ended Dec. 31

Salary:$975,000

Non-equity incentive pay:$1,061,775

Other compensation:$36,350

Exercised stock options:$13,876,352

New stock options: 450,000

Total return to shareholders: 11.6 percent

Note: Starks' total compensation for 2009 went down 50.5 percent, mainly because he exercised $29.8 million in stock options in 2008. His annual incentive was also down 22.2 percent as Starks and other St. Jude executives hit about 90 percent of their incentive target. Starks' short-term incentive is based 75 percent on earnings per share (EPS) and 25 percent on revenue. For 2009, St. Jude's revenue rose 7.3 percent to $4.7 billion and EPS was $2.26, up from $1.01 per share in 2008. Adjusted EPS for 2009 was $2.43, up from $2.22.

Starks' salary was down $18,750, but that was because of an extra week in the 2008 fiscal year. Starks' base pay rate has been the same since 2007, but it will increase in 2010 to $995,000.

For Starks' 2009 long-term incentive pay, the company recorded an expense of $5.9 million for stock options that will vest over the next four years, an amount down 8.7 percent from 2008.
