I work at home. In doing so I leave the TV on. I usually watch PBS but during pledge drives, I am forced to leave the channel tuned to something else. One of my passions is old movies (film noir). These channels have an unusual amount of advertising. These ads are sometimes amusing as these "off" channels are forced to sell advertising to what you might say are the most unscrupulous people. Ads like late night chat lines (phone sex), "As seen on TV" products, and the obligatory charity ads. Recently I had a film noir movie on and witnessed what I thought was a mistake. It was an ad to send money to homeless Holocaust survivors. I thought "what?" It was an ad by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. Now I don't know if this is legitimate but it seems fishy to say the least. I wonder how many Holocaust survivors are actually still alive. The charity only started in 2015. Now if the charity started 70 years ago or even 30 years ago I wouldn't be suspicious, but 2015?
Heres their website:
Now I am all for helping the holocaust survivors and or WWII veterans but there just aren't that many still around.
What do you think?
Also, do you know of any fishy religious charities like Joel Olsteen and others?
