Walking Wounded founder accused of wasting veterans' charity money on adventures

April 14, 2018

"Last year, without explanation, Walking Wounded was stripped of its charity status by the federal charities regulator."
Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case. And not just with Veteran charities either. There is absolutely a reason why we vet the charities we support, before we donate to them. In vetting these organisations we assure ourselves that we're doing the right thing with more than just our time and money, because it is also your money.
 
But other than just the financial aspect, we want to assure ourselves, and you, that the majority of what we donate, actually ends up with the target group it is intended for.
How many charity organisations have CEO's that lavish themselves with a significant salary. That salary is deducted from the kindness of the hardworking blue collar worker. We for one, do not wish to support organisations who do not stand by their charter. Nor do we wish to support an organisation that has toxic leadership. One where the "average" donation is a drop in the ocean in paying large overhead costs.
 
In regards to other charities on our "watch-list" there's a few we expect to be joining Walking Wounded. Until they are officially flagged we shall treat them with caution.
 
Now, in no way shape or form are we perfect in vetting our donation causes either, however, we apply our due diligence to ascertain if they are worth our time. The money comes after that.
