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?

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
