Got this via email today:
"As you open your pockets for the holiday season, keep these facts in mind:
Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO of the American Red Cross, salary for the year ending 6.30.03 was $651,957.00
Brian Gallagher, President of the United Way, receives a $375,00 base salary plus numerous expense benefits.
The Salvation Army' Commissioner, Todd Bassett, receives a salary of only$13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 Billion organization.
Please be generous to the bell ringers. No further comment necessary."
So I checked it out on Snopes.com. It appears to be incorrect. The United Way's president recieved $500,768 and the Salvation Army's top executive received $166,850.
