Grant applications, vetting processes, scientific oversight, etc. It's an intelligent system and it works. Going directly to the public is just a ploy by certain research groups to get even more money out of the public than the academic community believes is warranted. You can tell it smells funny because the appeals never deal in hard facts, instead they make emotional appeals to make you feel like a bad person if you don't give. The original poster's paragraph is a prime example of that. She/he makes it sound like it's our fault if our grandpa dies of cancer because we didn't contribute to her/his little bike ride.

    What you don't see out of these fundraisers is facts. You don't see discussion of, here's the amount of cancer research funding available from the government, here's the amount available from trusts and foundations, etc., here's what it goes to, here's where the shortfall is which is why we are appealing to you, etc. You know, presenting something that sounds more down to earth and less like an advertising spiel.

    Ultimately, that's how these fundraisers strike me -- they want my money the same way that McDonald's or Budweiser or Toyota want my money. Because they want to keep their jobs and grow their enterprise.

    I got to this post and I've given up already. What's the reason to debate you about awareness rallies/fundraisers/walk-a-thon/bikeride/bakesale/marathons anyway?

    Did she confuse Monklish with TomAz? That hasn't happened in a while.

    To be fair TomAz confused himself with jackstraw94086 in the first place.

    I just meant that this thread is full of enough tard. It doesn't need me adding to it.

    Let him keep going. His one-man fistfight choreography is usually incredible.

    This thread is a cancer. I hate smug bike riders as much as the next guy, but I also think it's silly to "contribute to the cure for cancer by becoming a scientist or getting a job to donate money" instead of doing cancer awareness activities. If I had a job, I'd contribute to myself. And if I was a scientist, I'd bring back dinosaurs.

    Any specific dinosaur? I would want to bring back the Stegosaurus, that's always been my favorite.

    I think I'd bring back a Triceratops. And I'd create Cancer Awareness Triceratops Racing. And also, I'd create Extreme Mountain Triceratops Destruction Derbies.

    This was a really entertaining read that I had previously slept on. Team Tom.

    i was trying to find the name of a medicine my doctor mentioned today, and i googled "breast cancer" and "awareness" was the first thing to pop up. i think we're aware by now.

    I think I may be being too subtle. I'm implying that you're going to touch yourself for quite some time in the name of charity.

    Please give.....what a fucking joke.


    TOP 25 COMPENSATION PACKAGES
    The salary information below was calculated by adding the IRS Form 990 categories of “Compensation,” “Contributions to employee benefit plans,” and “Expense accounts and other allowances.” Not included are any benefits received but not reported in the charity’s IRS Form 990.
    When information is given only on the national headquarters and the charity does not include its affiliates in its financial statements, “National Office” or “N.O.” appears after the group’s name.

    This table was published in the August 2011 issue of AIP's Charity Rating Guide & Watchdog Report.

    NOTE: AIP grades are not based on the salary ranges reported in the IRS form 990. DUE TO DIFFERENCES IN THE WAY SALARIES MIGHT BE ALLOCATED, HIGH SALARIES DO NOT NECESSARILY INDICATE INEFFICIENCIES JUST AS LOW SALARIES ARE NOT ALWAYS A PLUS.
