Being Alone, Animals, and Lgbt: this-tragic-affair Charities/organisations to avoid: PETA: They'd rather spend their money on publicity campaigns than on the animals in their care. PETA killed 73.8% of the animals in their care in 2015 (x) FCKH8: Is a for-profit company that exploits oppressed groups for money. They're also wildly uninformed, and spread misogyny, cissexism and bi/panphobia, as well as stealing their posts/designs (x) Autism Speaks: They spend most of their money on researching a way to eliminate autism, heighten the stigma against autism and don't have a single autistic person on their board (x) Please support other, better charities, and feel free to add any others you can think of to this paintedspectres Susan G. Komen for the Cure: CEO makes insane amounts of money, they deny a lot of requests for wigs/help with treatment/etc., and have attempted to sue other charities that use the color pink as part of their anti-breast cancer campaign. xx) prochoice-or-gtfo The Salvation Army: They promote the hatred of LGBT+ people, work with fundamentalist Christian groups to support conservative politics and rip off and exploit workers. (xxx) shitpost-senpai Wounded Warrior: They take money that should be spent on veterans and blow it on huge opulent parties for the company bigwigs. 26 million in 2014 alone wasted! x x) thefingerfuckingfemalefury Important reminder to NOT waste any money donating to these groups ayellowbirds Reblogging because of the added info about Wounded Warrior. arch4ngel A good way to know if a nonprofit you're donating to is allocating their money in the right way is to check out their Charity Navigator darkbookworm13 Signal boosting, the bell ringers are out in force, and this info is too important ayamccabre Depending on where you are, charity budgets may be public.
