Description

Every year, the worst charities in America rely on telemarketers to collect millions of dollars - purportedly to fund medical research, house homeless veterans or grant a child's dying wish. These charities pay their hired-gun solicitors as much as 95 cents of every dollar donated. Most of the rest goes to pay the charity's executives, often in the form of six-figure salaries or consulting fees. This is the truth behind the phone calls. People in need get a pittance of what's raised.
