    I don't think that is true, unless your definition of "most" and "relatively" is far different from mine.

    Do you have data or info to support?

    Typical overhead for charities is <20% ... there are plenty of organizations that put most or all of their money into research.

    What data are you looking at?

    I'm referring, OF COURSE, to your previous post and my response ... hilarious indeed.

    I can't wait to see us start wearing brown socks to help raise awareness about prostate cancer.

    So that sounds great in theory, but whats your solution? Stop supporting cancer causes until the others catch up?

    I agree with your statement to an extent that it is indeed true. Just not sure what the solution is.

    Why? People dont like the pink socks because the cause is over-saturated and jammed down their throats.....So is Jimmy V and his speech, by the brass at ESPN.

    My point is, they are all beneficial. I have no issue with either, but I others cant hate one without the other, as they virtually are handled the same way.

    So again, let me understand...People think we should support ALL causes....or NO causes at all? Am I correct here?

    It seems like breast cancer organizations are suffering a backlash from being more organized and out front. Anyone else see the problem with that backwards school of thought?

    A better question is, why cant the other organizations follow the model by breast cancer organizations and push themselves to the forefront as well?

    The post that you were responding to was made in jest, but... I don't have a problem with our team deciding to support a cause, just so long as it's not overtly political or in bad taste. Not all, and not none.

    Here's the worst 10 --

    http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=topten.detail&listid=164#.UlCLWuCV471

    The Children's Charity has been around for 17 years -- last year raised $1,300,000 -- and $1,100,000 went to fundraising expenses, and another $102,000 to administration expenses. Seems the children didn't do so well.

    Baby Blues in September for Prostate Awareness. If we're gonna do the pink, equal recognition for man cancer.

    Why not yellow?

    Brown for colon cancer?
