Maybe this Admo guy doesn't want the money to go to Africans, and would rather other people in harm could benefit from the funds?

Admo, if Annie and the rest of the Ante Up crew don't satisfy the things you are asking for, you should definitely donate it all to God's Love We Deliver. This is Joan River's Apprentice charity. Annie should really love that.

Admo definitely donate to that charity which makes us all live to 200 years old, IMO. If he doesn't he is scum.

Furthermore, it f***s up grain prices in the area and farmers work less hard and that causes more to suffer too.

I just think people need to do the research before donating to starving people in africa. Fwiw, 100% of any money I donate goes to scientific research or for birth control in 3rd world countries. Overpopulation, and underdeveloped economy, and bad government is why the africans suffer. Its not really something money can fix very easily.
This is just spew based on some incredibly naive idea of what charities based in Africa do. Seriously, you get all your information from AM radio call-in shows right? Do you think these charities just ship starving people a bunch of grain or something (which you as an economics and finance wiz say messes up grain prices, makes farmers lazy and somehow causes more suffering or something). I mean really why try to sound SO knowledgeable about something you have absolutely no clue on and you just have some ridiculously incorrect ideology-based views on?

Your idea of how much money is wasted on 'bearucracy' is ******ed and the kind of thing people just spout with no actual research. Or maybe you are confused and thinks actual bears are running the charities, which would definitely be inefficient, true.

Haha I love that you added this, it really makes it sound like you donate a ton of money and makes you sound credible. How much have you donated to birth control in 3rd world countries, how exactly are you doing that? Also looking forward to your views on how overpopulation and bad economies are going to help with the genocide in Darfur (which I'm sure you know the AUFA/Refugees International are involved with since you obviously are pretty up on all this).

When you disagree with someone it is usually best include evidence / reasons for your side of the argument. You have failed horribly.

I first read about this on Tao of Poker and I just assumed 'Hunter' was just Pauly messing around. Like, Pauly was relaying what he'd heard on the grapevine and decided to do it in-character, in the same way that the real Hunter (S. Thompson) did with Raoul Juke.

what I'm amazed about is that Harrah's took rake out of the prize pool especially considering all the free advertising they are getting from hosting the "charity event"... Talk about snatching up every last penny...

Charging vig on a charity event is serious lol. I mean, they'll claim dealers, staff, etc. need to get paid and that's all that the vig is covering, but why not cough it out of Harrah's pocket and be... charitable?

He was just dissing him for trying to sound knowledgeable about something he probably doesnt know **** about, if he if just tried to argue back when he doesnt really know much about it either I think that might be a bit hypocritical.

Did Pauly end up taking down the letter after posting it? I don't see it on the site.

Are you kidding me? A lot of non-profits are poorly managed financially. My college runs a carnival fundraiser every year with a different charity receiving the money each time. This last year, there was a huge controversy over the charity that got the money, because only 10% of the money it received in donations was actually donated - 90% was used to cover payroll/expenses/overhead/etc. Instead of donating money to a sketchy charity run by UB, why not donate the money to a sure thing? If a charity isn't transparent about its finances, I'd be very hesitant to give it any money at all.

Considering the way the poker world pretty much hates Joan now too I think this is worse than donating it to AUFA.

Actually, didnt Admo's response say that the dealers weren't paid out of the vig for this event?

You know what *** Africa! Its there governments fault! Im all for donating to charity but maybe once Duke instead of trying to not look like a B*tch should think about all the kids in parts of AMERICA that are starving! Also you all talk about Admos donation holding out means kids will starve, What about Admos own child? Why should he donate money to an organization that is helping children in other countries but when he is worried about his child doesn't give a sh*t! And to all the morons that give me **** I don't really fn care!

I forget the percentage that ends up directly helping people but I'm pretty sure it's well over 90% after admin costs, etc. (There are others, PM if interested).

I'm a skeptic for sure, I know there are tons of charities around wasting money, but I just think tarring all charities like that is not very helpful when it's not true, and problems like AIDS in Africa is such a worthy cause that can really be hurt by these memes people hear offhandedly and then repeat. Okay just a side note (figured one more sidetrack in this thread couldn't hurt it too much).
Very well said, quoted so anyone who missed it can catch this important post.
