Kars4Kids. What a bunch of bull honky.

Ever see those billboards for Kids4Kars where you donate you car to needy children? Yeh it's not going towards needy children. According to a tax return in 2007 the funds raised by this "charity" get funneled to another charity called Oorah. A religious orginization whos stated mission is to heighten Jewish childrens' awareness of their heritage.

See it's greedy misleading people that give most religions bad names.

Oh here's the link if you want to read the story.

I didn't read the link, but maybe they are NEEDY Jewish children?

Maybe they are Jewish children in NEED of awareness about their heritage?  I guess the word "neediness" is subjective, isn't it?  I actually think it's kind of funny.  Is that sick, or what?

I've never heard of the program. I'm not really outraged by this...sorry.

i too think it is deceiving.  If it is a religious organization they really should have to use their real name, not an "outside" name.

Hmm, this is interesting. Let's pretend for a minute that they are African American. Lots of people feel there is a bonafide "need" for African American children to learn about their background. I'd say that if everything were EXACTLY the same (meaning the children who benefit were of the same socioeconomic background or "scale of neediness" as the Jewish children whom this program IS benefiting) it would be more readily accepted by society if the children were black versus Jewish. I think as a society, we are more willing to pay or donate money to help African American children learn of their heritage than we are for Jewish children. You could plug different ethnicities into the equation & come up with lots of interesting ones. Very interesting.
