1. I learned that the American Red Cross is in South Carolina right now helping with the flood they had. While talking to the representative I learned that 90% of what is donated to them is given back to the people. Also, with the disaster in South Carolina the representative wouldn’t be able to come in. I learned that the Red Cross specialties are disaster relief, supporting America’s Military families, health and safety training/education, and collecting blood to save lives.
  2. It is important to look at the numbers before investing so you can know what you’re actually putting your money towards. I learned by looking at the tax returns of the American Red Cross that they give back 90.48% of the money. However, 33.76% of their expense is fundraising, with only 3.87% going to pay management salaries.
