I pulled funding for the turd-burgling United Way many years ago.
So the United Way of Greater Cleveland supports pedophilia? Who knew?
Ya know these big outfits like Intel and United Way are deep pockets. If some boy scout gets molested because of their pressure to give homosexuals access to children, I’d think that would make them liable in a civil suit.
Make my Chik-Fil-A.
Not only is this an opportunity to support BSA in Clevelandthere's also the chance to damage United Way of Cleveland's ability to get donations by stigmatizing anyone who gives to it as a pedophile-enabler.
I stopped giving to this organization years ago too. There are simply too many good charities to give to.
Never gave a nickel to the united way. If you want to donate to a worthy cause, give to the Salvation Army, and the BSA directly.
Does the United Way provide funds to Big Brothers/Big Sisters? Does Big Brothers ban openly gay “mentors”? Just wondering.
I pulled funding of United Way years ago.
same here. still harangued at work to give to United Gays.
I stopped supporting United Way many years ago over this issue. Apparently, they prefer to cater to the far left, even though leftists don’t donate to charity (ignoring the immorality of their stance, which seems not to even be a consideration for UW leadership), and alienate the rest of us.
I prefer to give directly.
Actually, right now is the season in which the boys are out, selling their popcorn. I wish that they had something better to sell (they'll never match girl scout cookies) because I don't care for their popcorn. It does make a good Christmas present, though. Or you could just drop a few bucks into their hands as a donation without buying the popcorn.
Odds are very high they will lose way more donations than the cost of the scout aid.
IIRC, this all started with Levi’s pressuring United Way to stop funding the BSA. UW eventually relented under pressure. I stopped giving to UW and haven’t wore a pair of Levi’s or Dockers since. BTW, Wrangler has a line of slacks named Riata, the dye and the fabric is much better. They hold a crease and cost a lot less than a pair of Dockers.
I stopped when I left active duty in the Navy in 1973. I started moving my meager contributions to the Boy Scouts when my son was a scout, about eighteen years ago. Indeed, he graduated an Eagle.
I wonder if United Way acn survive with only the 1% of fags supporting them.
Like another poster said , my threat of not supporting them is no threat since I dumped them years ago.
I can't speak for the girl scouts, my girls want nothing to do with them.
