The Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Reporting have compiled a list of the 50 Worst Charities in America, ranked by money blown on soliciting costs. I've hear a lot of bad things about #1 on this list (Kids Wish Network) from other places that list bad charities (like Charity Navigator). Always double-check that the charity you're about to donate to is actually worth donating to. (Number 8 on the list [National Veteran's Service Fund] tops CN's list of the most annual 0-star poor reviews, with 10 in a row).
1. Kids Wish Network
2. Cancer Fund of America
3. Children’s Wish Foundation International
4. American Breast Cancer Foundation
5. Firefighters Charitable Foundation
