Okie, I do have a question for you, if you know the answer. What exactly qualifies as "expenses"?

For example in another thread for homeless vets it was said that a new building is being built that resembles a pentagon and they will be able to help more people. Is this an "expense"? I have no issues with expenses that help the people directly. I have an issue with expenses such as airline tickets or millions of dollars for sponsorship or advertising.

Mike, those are great questions. But, I would think this discussion might be better suited for a different thread / forum. Whether or not we or even Dave agrees with the way that WWP is spending it's donations, he is already on board with this cook for them. It might change his mind for future cooks, or he may decide that it is better than nothing.

No disrespect intended. Just hate seeing a great thing a brethren is doing be derailed.

36.3% was spent for fund raising. That is all I can find.

Nothing is being derailed. I thanked Dave for his efforts, and made Dave and other people aware of military charities that do more for vets than WWP. Nothing political; nothing nasty. If people take it that way, it is their problem, not mine. WWP still does a lot of good. Being a disabled vet (not in need of assistance), this is a subject dear to me.

Mods, please feel free to move this post if it is inappropriate per your rules.

Thanks guy for the replies and the questions.
I will not stop trying my best to do whatever I can, in whatever small way it is, to help our Vets, and the homeless.
BBQ is what I and others love to do, and using it as a vehicle to bring others a bit of happiness or to raise funds to help is what, to me at least, what the Brethren Spirit truly is

Guys let's just let the side bar discussion slide off to the side.

Okie posted a fact that we all should know and I thank him for that.

You are 72 miles from me! Let me ask the wife as I only get home on weekends. I am sure she will let me. I might get to ride my motorcycle up there if it's a nice day. Can you PM me the details on startup so I can create an agenda. Sounds like a great time!!!

Has the forum become so picky that if something is mentioned in a thread, i.e. WWP, that we cannot expand upon that topic? It seems spot on to me. How many other threads drift way off of topic?

Dave, I'll try to make it up with Farklf. Rarely get a chance to help out with things like this, so unless there is some sort of catastrophic event, I'll be there to help out in any way I can. Let me know if there is anything you need.

The topic of this thread is the event that Diesel Dave is working on in Michigan, NOT the merits or various charities and the criteria to judge them. Again, if you would like to discuss this, please start another thread.
