This charity does not meet one or more of the 20 standards for Charity Accountability.

What are those 20 standards?

Hmmm, it's no wonder why so many charities have to WASTE so much money they receive... EEEKS!!!!!! The 20 "standards" are insane!!!!! How about providing a truthful report on how the money is spent, PERIOD?!?!?

We don't even get that 1 "STANDARD" from our lovely big bro when they extort our hard earned money from us, but to be privileged enough to earn the BBB endorsement, people need to jump through hoops & bark like dogs?? Hmmm, maybe THEY should enforce such standards for all of the 3 & 4 letter agencies that are so intrusive in our lives... you know, the AAP, CDC, WHO, EPA, etc. Ooooooh, the ever so prominent BBB won't grant their exclusive endorsement for AS... but hmmmm, they probably endorse some bomb making, terrorist "charities."
