    Is a gift to Rat’s charity tax deductible?

    How about the “Send Rat One-Way to the Middle East” fund?

    As a public service, the top five charities in terms of efficiency (percent of donations that go to the actual cause):

    #5. Invisible Children — 80%

    #4. World Vision — 85%

    #3. Doctors Without Borders — 86%

    #2. American Red Cross — 92%

    #1. Help Rat Raise $85,000 — 100%

    Well now, the choice is clear.

    The United Methodist Committee on Relief, aka UMCOR, has a unique system that allows it to deliver 100 percent of donations to people in need. Whether in the form of food, clothing, disaster supplies, or whatever, they make use of existing structures, personnel, and agencies within the church’s mission apparatus that are already funded in the regular budget. In other words, they don’t have to hire additional administrators or pay for office space or any infrastructure expenditures. You give a dollar, someone gets a dollar’s worth of whatever they need.

    Anecdotal Red Cross Experience:

    While serving in the Air Force in Germany in 1966, I had to drive 3 hours to the port of Bremen to ship my car home after receiving orders to a new station. After finishing the paperwork, I went to the train station to buy my ticket and discovered that I had managed to lose my wallet. No money, no ID.

    I went to the Red Cross facility at the train station and told them my sad story. In 30 minutes they verified my identity, fed me coffee and doughnuts, and gave me a train ticket back to my base.

    No prize for guessing who gets my charitable donations.

    P.S. When I picked up my car a couple of months later in New York, I found my wallet under the driver’s seat.

    Hey, Pastis… would calling it “The Clinton Family Foundation” have been just too much of a coincidence?

    People say they want honesty, but then they are always so angry and hostile when they actually encounter some.

    On “I Love Lucy,” Lucy raffled off a TV set for the “Ladies’ Overseas Aid Society” — to raise funds to pay Lucy and Ethel’s fare to Europe.

    Once again I agree with Mr. Rat. My favorite and only charity is myself.
