Just read a piece from Chris Battle (http://kidneycancerchronicles.com/american-cancer-society-salaries/) about what the head of American Cancer Society rakes in. WOW!
Given that I and John's family and friends just signed up for a walk (Walking for John) on May 6 in support of National Kidney Foundation (http://donate.kidney.org/site/TR?fr_id=4480&pg=entry), I'm a little discouraged as it's hard to see this as anything but greed at the top. We've personally collected a measley $2000 so far but the overall walk has collected over $75,000 with a goal of more than twice that. And I wonder if the National Kidney Foundation has a similar scale. Guess I need to google this stuff too before I get involved.
Here's a clip from Chris Battle:
"Who knew how rewarding charity work could be -- and I don't mean spiritually or emotionally. Did you know that John Seffrin, the head of the American Cancer Society, makes $2,270,450 a year? (If you include bonuses and deferred compensation, it's closer to $2.5 million.)
I give money to American Cancer Society. Or did. No more. I don't think I'll be running any Relays for Life either. They should consider changing the title to Relay for John."
