Also, the various charities that help accomplish this... do not seem to reach out or market themselves very widely to potential donors... (one prominent charity group some kind person suggested here ...doesn’t even have a paypal account set up yet to accept contributions, and it has been active for years....)
In short, where’s all that supposed “financial expertise” we’ve heard about? (smile, smile)
If this Bennett guy is getting all the attacks, he must have done something right
