The Ice Bucket Challenge Lunacy: Just Another Fraud

als-association-donations  The Ice Bucket Challenge Lunacy: Just Another Fraud als association donations1Well, I cannot say that I’m surprised, but it seems that everybody has been duped.  The good news in all that story  is that the World  is still filled with generous, fun-loving and caring people. The viral ice bucket challenge has combined, attention seeking, sense of responsibility to our fellow human, coupled with idiocy and a little bit of exhibitionism.  Ice Bucket Challenge donations are nearing $100 MILLION. Where is that money going?  According to the ALS Foundation, not towards ALS.  Over 73% of all donations raised are going to fundraising, overhead, executive salaries, and external donations. Less than 27% is actually used for the purpose we donated for.    According to the ECFA, a charitable watchdog, 27% of donations actually making it to the cause they are donated to is unacceptable. In fact, the ECFA won’t deem a non-profit as a reliable charity unless at least 80% of donations make it to their intended projects.  Here’s the breakdown of the ALS Foundation’s Financials:
