I love this.. because of course we all love the idea behind what charities do.. but sometimes we don't know exactly where every penny of our dollar goes when we donate.
It turns out that some charities do NOT give very much to who they say they're giving it to. Not only that.. but they have CEOs and other people who make a TON of money in salary off of the money we donate.
The Tampa Bay Times did some great investigative reporting and exposed 50 different charities for giving VERY LITTLE of the money they raise to the actual cause that they claim they give their money to.
In some cases.. less than 1% of the money raised actual goes to help people.

Jeff Garlin got arrested over the weekend.. doesn't this sound like it could be right out of an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm"?:
"Los Angeles police say "Curb Your Enthusiasm" actor and comedian Jeff Garlinhas been arrested on a felony vandalism charge after a dispute with another motorist over a parking space.
Police Sgt. Harry Rosenfeld says the 51-year-old actor was arrested for allegedly smashing the windows of the other person's car. Rosenfeld says officers arrested Garlin in Studio City on Saturday.
Garlin was jailed on $20,000 bail. It wasn't clear from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's website if he had been released. Garlin's publicists didn't immediately respond to phone and email messages Sunday.
Garlin played Larry David's friend and manager on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and was the show's co-executive producer. He's also appeared frequently on "Arrested Development" and numerous other television shows."
