I'm Anderson Cooper.
Welcome to proadcast.
Cancer Charities has spent most of your donations on themselves.
They respond to expert Zain, also ridiculous.
Let's get started.
Last week, after profiling three so called cancer charities that seemed only to care about their profits,
I challenged the people who run them to come onto the program or talk to our correspondent Drew Griffin.
Let them explain, I said,
facts uncovered by Drew, the Chamber Debate Times and the Center from Investigator reporting,
facts that show these so called charities to be abusing and squandering your harden donations like none we've ever seen before.
Drive down these country roads outside Knoxville,Tennessee and enter into this small industrial park,
and you'll find a headquarters of a family of Cancer Charities that returns lavish salaries to their owners.
But according to their own tax records, donate very little to dying cancer patients.
And the last thing the people running this charity want to do is answer questions.
“Don't, don't turn the camera on me, ok?”
Across the country, in Mesa Arizona, another outpost of the, it's called the Breast Cancer Society,
its CEO and Executive Director, the man escaping in the truck, James Reynolds Junior.
“Excuse me, sir, Mr. Reynolds?”
That… another Cancer Charity, the Children's Cancer fund of America.
And this one, run by yet another member of the family, Rose Perkins.
“Hi, is Rose Perkins in?”
“She's unavailable and she's not doing anything with these.”
Rose Perkins did email us and tell us her charity has a clear conscious “because we feel we are making a good difference in people's lives.”
But also told us in interview as “not something we can consider.”
That maybe because of questions we'd like to ask her and the other members of the extended family, who are essentially making a living on your donations.
a system of giving money, food, or help free to those who are in need because they are ill, poor, or have no home, or any organization that has the purpose of providing money or helping in this way
They did so under the mask of charity.
