Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary just $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 Billion dollar organization. By comparison, Brian Gallagher, President of the United Way receives a $375,000 base salary (plus numerous expensive benefits) and the Red Cross President Marsha Evans receives $450,000 (the article was written in 2002 a wapping 50% increase in 1 year??) plus benefits..."

Even back in the Korean War according to a dear friend who was there and serving with the army medics, everyone knew the Red Cross was very inferior in actually helping people compared to the Salvation Army. If you want to help, send them a check at
Salvation Army.

How You Can Help Hurricane Katrina Victims
Because time is of the essence and the need is great, you're no doubt wondering which organization can do the most good with your money. After doing some investigating of my own (prompted by the World Trade Center disaster), I've found
the Salvation Army to be the most effective charitable organization in this country.
