UNICEF fundraising committees have notably steep expenses, cash reserves, auditors find

Halloween is an important event for the United Nations Children's Fund, or UNICEF, as hundreds of thousands of trick-or-treaters go house-to-house asking for  pennies or dollars to help the world’s needy children. But according to the U.N. Board of Auditors, which monitors the organization’s finances, the cost of funneling such private sector money through UNICEF’s national committees to the global organization is getting so expensive that it merits special notice.

A report by the auditors that was published last June, but won’t be considered by UNICEF’s supervisory executive board until next year, highlights the fact that those national committees last year kept an average of 29 percent of overall private sector  contributions for themselves, either as expenses or as stockpiled cash.

In all, more than $341 million in donations was held back by administrators in 2012, and more than $2.39 billion over the period from 2006 to 2012, amounts that the auditors dryly labeled as “high.”

I hope unicef hangs itself with all the rope it's been given through the years.

Sorry, UN gets zip, zero, squat, nothing!

I agree. Evacuate the building, board up the windows and send them all home AFTER they pay all their parking fines! But I do have a suggestion for where good Samaritans can send their contributions to. The Salvation Army. They are extremely low budget, ask no questions and they are there when and where you need them and are a wonderful organization. I know this for a fact having been through several floods here in the Midwest USA. In contrast, the Red Cross was there too, and it took four pages of paperwork to fill out just so you could get a mop and bucket from them. Maybe we should give the UN building to the Salvation Army?

More politicos abusing the taxpayer/ supporters. They're part of the elite now and can waste at will. Of course, that's true of the whole U.N. too.

Get the US out of the UN!

I no longer donate to this thievery organization.  I have never seen it work in any of the communities I have lived in.  But it was when I learned of the CEO's salary, I knew it had more intentions of helping themselves than anyone else.

I would love to give the UN the shaft.Get the hell out of America hell go home if you've got one.

trick is the right word. No more money from this household.

Liberals trick at the expense of needy children, shameless characters all......

I never give one red cent to any of these agencies until I have checked them out, and I am convinced that they are honest and upfront about everything...even the red cross is corrupt.....

More socialists hiding behind the "children" shield. Just like Obama.

Another liberal organization lying and stealing. Who can you trust?

Racism -> Emergency Medical Doctor Rails Against Whites: “White People Can Be Exhausting” – ‘Racism Towards Whites Doesn’t Exist’ 

 Esther Choo (pictured above), an emergency medical doctor and professor in Oregon, took to Twitter to rail against white people and after getting called out for her racism, she asserted that it’s impossible to be racist towards whites.

According to Choo’s bio, she’s an emergency physician and associate professor at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Choo is the daughter of Korean immigrants and uses social media to talk about racism and sexism in healthcare, according to her bio.

“White people can be exhausting. Just an observation,” Choo said in a tweet on Friday.

When she received backlash for her racist tweet, Choo continued to taunt and disparage whites.

“Observation #2: white people are going to prove my point on this very thread,” Choo said responding to the backlash.

She also bragged that Twitter took her side when people reported her tweet.

“Observation #3: when people try to convince Twitter that white people are experiencing reverse racism, Twitter understands that is not a thing.”

Twitter may not have a problem with racism against white people, but what about the medical community?

Dr. Choo received huge backlash on Twitter.

This is coming from an Emergency Medicine Physician who is considered a "leader" in her field. She's scheduled to be a speaker at the American College of Emergency Physicians in October. She runs a website called FeminEM prompting Feminist causes in EM and a racist.

Pretty racist statement, TBH.

Protected groups being immune to being called out for blatant bigotry is exhausting, just an observation.

Replace “white” with any other race, and Dr. Choo would be out of a job.

Update: Dr. Choo deleted her racist tweets and set her Twitter account to “private” after she received backlash from hundreds of people.
