    Really grasping at straws with this one. This is about for-profit fundraising companies who front money to charities in hope of turning a profit on the take. NSAL probably doesn't use them and certainly doesn't qualify as that sort of operation. They just suck in general.

    She's like one of those dolls that closes its eyes whenever you lay it down on its back.

    I agree, but that white contour over her body shows how they have pretty much photoshopped her into a nice "fuck me from behind" profile... Beff is always tasteful in her high class fertografy.

    Swear to god I was thinking "Christ, what a Herman Munster head on that broad" as I scrolled down.

    I could see how the shot could confuse you, all the elements of the "hot chick curled in silk sheets" come-hither pose are in place sans the hot chick.

    From the looks of her, I'd guess she's been dead at least 12 hours.[/QUOTE]

    You do notice she's covering those gigantic man-hands and clown feet, right? Once she gets up and starts flailing around you'll run for the hills.

    That's it.

    Pull the Form 990 on GuideStar, and you can see that, Beth aside, NSAL blows large chunks not because it uses intermediaries, but because it spends an inordinate amount of money on overhead, ads/special events, salaries etc. It really is a "Hobby Charity": e.g., some rich folk on the East Coast decided that it would be fun and dandy to start a charity that deals with an uncontroversial subject and did just that. It is a "legitimate" charity in that it is not an outright fraud. It's just that keeping all those rich folk happily engaged requires a lot of galas and special events that, in turn, consume the donations.

    I actually hold special contempt for NSPCA, which is almost as bad as NSAL for its ad/outreach expenditures, but which is much better known.

    New York (CNN) -- In what it called the "largest amount of financial relief ever obtained for deceptive charitable fundraising," the New York State Attorney General's office has reached a nearly $25 million settlement with one of the nation's biggest direct-mail companies.

    The settlement calls for damages of just under $10 million and forgiveness of debt for another $13.8 million against Quadriga Art, whose clients include some of the nation's most well-known charities.

    A three-year CNN investigation into Quadriga Art and its profiteering off donations made to U.S. veterans has led to a fine that New York regulators say is precedent-setting. This potentially could change how professional fundraisers operate in the state of New York and possibly the entire country.

    The total settlement prevents Quadriga from engaging in what it calls a "funded model" of beginning new charities -- paying all of the start-up costs and fundraising costs in advance in hopes of profit down the road.

    In particular, the settlement zeroes in on Quadriga's relationship with a charity based in Washington called the Disabled Veterans National Foundation, founded in 2007.

    back to Quadriga as payment for the direct-mail campaign. Almost none of the cash left over went to veterans, the CNN investigation found.

    As a result of CNN's reporting, the Senate Finance Committee began an investigation of Quadriga and the veterans foundation. So did the New York State Attorney General's office.

    The Senate investigation is ongoing, according to a spokesman for the committee. The New York state investigation found that for all intents and purposes, the charity was a front for Quadriga.

    "From the very beginning," the state said, "the investigation found DVNF lacked independence from its principal fundraiser, Quadriga. Quadriga's lawyer's got the charity up and running and drafted the fundraising counsel agreement that DVNF signed."

    In all, the charity raised $116 million since 2008 but returned $104 million of it to Quadriga, according to the attorney general.

    And of that leftover funds, much of it was sent in the form ofdonations that one prosecutor said was "dreck" -- M&M candy, chef's hats and coats and leftover shoes that no one wanted.

    The settlement was signed by New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

    State Attorney: Actions were 'pretty despicable'

    "To take the money that people are trying to spend to help disabled veterans just to feed your own overhead and to pay off your executives as Quadriga did here is pretty despicable," Schneiderman told CNN.

    Quadriga president and CEO Mark Schulhof said in a statement that he has "taken responsibility for the mistakes that were made" in its dealings with the veterans charity.

    "We deeply apologize for our actions and for any adverse impact they may have had on our industry," he said.

    Schulhof also said his uncle, Tommy Schulhof, had resigned as the company's chairman of the board.

    Under terms of the settlement, the founding board members of the charity are resigning and the charity can no longer do business with Quadriga for three years unless the company is a legitimate low bidder and prosecutors agree.

    A spokesman for the Disabled Veterans National Foundation, Timothy Gillis, said the settlement "actually strengthens" the charity.

    Goddamn.

    Some of those 'Cons' are brutal:

    'Your heart breaks at the way they just let the Dogs sit in their Cages for weeks with hardly any walks or playtime.'

    'This is a very mean spirited organization and the managers and higher uppers are extremely nasty self serving people. They pretend to love the animals and want what is best but really in the end all they want is a pay check and people thinking they are so terrific. '
