How your charity money is spent

I received this Email from a friend.  Not sure where the data comes from, or if it's fact, but if it is, it's interesting, and it will influence my decision where to send money next time the disaster bug bites humanity.

    As you open your pockets for yet another natural disaster, keep these facts in mind:

    - Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO of the  American Red Cross... salary for year ending 06/30/03  was $651,957 plus expenses.

    - Brian Gallagher,  President of the United Way receives a  $375,000 base salary, plus numerous expense benefits.
    - The Salvation Army's Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization.

    No further comment necessary.
