The United Way has a great deal of power. Way too much power, IMO. That's why I quit giving to them about 20 or so years ago. I usually try to persuade others to do the same, but Hey! ... give where you feel your hearts' intentions are best fulfilled.

Regarding the United Way, a friend's husband works at US Cellular, and last year everyone (who works) in the store was INSTUCTED to donate a certain percentage of their paycheck to United Way. Fortunately I read FR, so I told them what United Way does to the Boy Scouts. As a result, my friend's hubby told all his co-workers about UW's hatred towards the Boy Scouts and why, and all the employees at that stores refused en masse to donate to the UW. It was company policy, so all US Cel employees had to do it. Except at this one store. But you can imagine the money.
