anyway, if 99% of all charities in the world fork out only 1 cent out of 1 dollar donation to ''intended beneficiaries'' then that's just too bad, everyone's stupid and blind to support charities then.
of course we don't need people down here to stand on moralistic pedestals, we need people up there in the position to prove that they deserve to stand on that pedestal entrusted to them. to even say that it's not their fault that ''things happen'' is just so ... well, no word for that.

He was arrogant and ran NKF as a personal empire.
Used the patron like an idiot to intimidate others.
Sued people who told the truth and used the legal process to force them to apologise and pay damages.
Used charity funds donated by people much poorer than himself, to go on Las Vegas trips.
This is an EVIL scheming person.
So don't say that he is good at running companies.
Hitler and his Nazis were also good at running prison camps.
They were also good at winning battles at the start of WW II.
let's not be so idealistic yes
We choose the system we live in
People use the legal system to achieve their ends
you chose to donate to NKF when it's quite obvious that there were issues with the way this company was run in the first place (when a charity can organise a large-scale charity show on television consistently, with a production and advertising that obviously runs in large figures, you know that alot of money is being spent)
Scheming?perhaps. Is that a bad trait to have in a CEO?
Evil? what evil did he do apart from being extravagant in his spending?
At the end of the day no one forced you to give him your money. I wouldn't give anyone money consistently without making enquiries into where the money is going.
Welcome to the world of capitalism!
I think that when he was in a position of strength, and others at his mercy, he went all out to bully them. You know what I mean, no compassion.
In the process, he got more arrogant and may have felt that he was untouchable.
It is exactly this overblown pride and cruelty to others, that led him to his downfall, when he thought that he could once again intimidate the news reporter and the newspaper.
Did you realise that a simple acknowledgment and some humility would have saved the day?
[sorry, the gold tap is true. But it was the designer's choice. And anyway it only cost $XX. We take responsibility for not correcting the designer. We will immediately change the choice of tap to reflect the charitable nature of the building. Thanks for highlighting. ]
See--- damage control.
Just a little bit of humility goes a long way.
And the whole Board will still be intact. Some enjoying tremendous privileges and fancy first class flights to expensive study trips using donor's money.
All CEO jobs should come with a money back guarantee.
actually i can also do his $25k job lei... i will accept $12.5k to be stationed there 24 hrs ! Dear UAE, do u hear me ?
