So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
(reblogged in honor of my mother, who died of breast cancer, 11/13/97)
Yeah they only spend 20% because they spend a large amount on education so that women know what to look for and can get help early. They give money to clinics that give breast cancer screenings. A small portion of money raised also goes to women who can’t afford treatment. So they are good at marketing and raise a lot of money with various campaigns; no one seemed to care that the ALS foundation raised 100 million for a disease that kills far fewer. Don’t believe everything you read on tumblr. Take it with a grain of salt.
