I Wish It Weren't True

My cousin benefited greatly from this charity, which is one reason I feel particularly saddened to read of some kind of impropriety occurring at the local mid-Atlantic chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. As the Washington Post reports, local president, Catherine Martens, was fired for "unacceptable workplace conduct" following the mass resignation on Friday of nineteen of the twenty members of the local board of directors. WTOP reports the story somewhat differently, focusing on the allegation that the national organization's actions were to raid the local organization's coffers.

At any rate, it clearly reflects poorly on the entire organization -- and makes me deeply question my financial commitment to it.

  1. Don't question your financial commitment to this great organization. Ms. Martens does this in EVERY position! Not the first, second, or third time. What we need to question is why people like this continue to get new jobs. Employers need to tell the TRUTH about why they are fired!!!
