  1. I’m sorry to hear this about World Vision, and I do hope that the financial hit they take from Christians taking their charity elsewhere causes them to re-think their decision. I used to sponsor a girl through Compassion, although that was a number of years ago now, so I’m not aware if they’ve made similar sorts of decisions. If not, perhaps they’ll see a boost in support.
    Also, thanks for re-blogging my last post. I enjoyed quite the surge in visitors!

    In the past few years World Vision has become much more aggressive in their tactics to gain new sponsors…to the point of attacking your character if you defer or decide not to participate. I have written to them about my concerns and choose not to support them based on their marketing tactics. I see now, I have another reason to put my money elsewhere!

  3. It should be noted that they did, in fact, reverse this decision.

    It looks like Jeremy is right, and World Vision is reversing its decision: http://www.worldmag.com/2014/03/world_vision_reportedly_reverses_decision#.UzNaglGq1l0.facebook

    Ever wonder how much of your donations are going to administration, advertising, salaries? Here is a link with a wealth of information so you can make an informed decision before donating to any charity:

    World Vision, does a lot of advertising to get people to donate. We were absolutely shocked at the salaries of those in management with this organization. We’re thankful that detailed information is made available – all one has to do is a little searching via that website.

      That’s true – some of the salaries for people who work for these charities is disturbing. I knew some people close to the leadership of Samaritan’s Purse, and they talked about the crazy salaries that the leaders of the organization were bringing in – it makes me wonder how many $50 donations from faithful old pensioners are swallowed up unnecessarily by overhead.
