I once inherited a project which doesn't even run when compiled as release, only as debug. And another one with a couple hundreds (not kidding) warnings. My point is, while I feel your pain, I am not shocked in the slightest.
The truth behind charity is that for "most" charities, up to half of the donated money goes to overhead and cost of running the charity and the rest actually goes to the intended target, which can be considerably less than what you thought you were donating.
Always try to donate to charities with low overhead and well documented $$ to target streams.
Even if it's operated as a low-overhead charity: In the case of an organization like the Ronald McDonald House...remember that they represent a huge multinational corporation, and running a charity like this is a huge tax deductible.
How much more income taxes would they be paying to the various governments if they weren't running the charity?
