New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman recently said that many nonprofit organizations are withholding donations from the victims of Superstorm Sandy which happened in October 2012.
The New York Attorney General found that only about 50% of the amount had been distributed and the rest has yet to be given away.
The charities who had kept back some of the money said they were it for future disasters.
Here's what I don't get: when I made my donation, I assumed the money would be given to the victims ASAP and that was that. I don't want my money to be divided up at someone else's discretion. And when a future disaster happens, I will make another donation then. It's really that simple.
The victims need money for yesterday's disaster, not a pension plan for tomorrow.
I hope the New York Attorney General continues his investigation and makes sure the beneficiaries receive our money...and I mean all of it!
