In recent news, the Salvation Army has been under some scrutiny. One of the executives has been fired along with one of their employees.
Over the years, millions of dollars worth of toys have gone missing and as the organization tightened up ship they came to reveal that something wasn’t right hence the termination of this executive.
I really have no clue how anyone is able to sleep at night knowing they’re stealing from children along with taking the kindness of others for granted. My family often donates to the Salvation Army (aka Sally Anne). I thought it was one of the more reputable charities as they sometimes give donations to the needy opposed to selling it.
I’ve always had my issues with trusting that these large organizations would be actually giving to those in need. It’s stories like these that make me want to think twice about donating.
The reality is, people are in need and need help. It’s takes one bad apple to ruin the bunch. In this case, this one bad exec has tarnished the reputation of Sally Ann but I still believe that the organization in general is good-natured and will continue to put the community first.
In no way do I represent Sally Anne, I just hope they’re able to recover from this negative press. Especially with the Christmas season fast approaching.
I give to a variety of chairities which have a common bond – children. Every child deserves a happy childhood. Specifically at Christmas!
How of you feel about it?
