Sure You Want to Donate to Bono's "One Campaign"?

Singer Bono has a 'charity' called the One Campaign that supposedly fights poverty in the third world. Here is what they do with their donations:

The Bono nonprofit took in $14,993,873 in public donations in 2008, the latest year for which tax records are available.
Of that, $184,732 was distributed to three charities, according to the IRS filing.
Meanwhile, more than $8 million was spent on executive and employee salaries.

Among other things, One Campaign is worried about the nonexistent 'climate change' threat.

charities are all cons as most of the money only enriches the rich.
Give them all nothing as it never reaches the poor anywhere.
