David Kamin of Shalimar was surprised to find how much money charities collecting for Bahamas storm victims pay their administrators vs. how much they direct to the victims.

Nature unlashes her fury. Devastation ensues. We want to help and do.

Unfortunately, sometimes our generosity doesn't go where it is intended.

There are tons of charitable organizations out there, including many well recognized names. I would encourage those that are so inclined to give do a little research before they give. I did and the results were shocking.

They all are required to file annual financial reports. Check it out to see how much of your money actually goes to the victims versus the "administrators."
