Please contact the website http://www.helping.org/ and ask them to remove the Violence Policy Center, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and the Million Mom March from their "charity" list.  You can email them at [email protected]  I pointed out to them that these organizations are not charities, and they have absolutely nothing to do with what happened on 9/11.  Also contact CNN and email them at their feedback URL regarding their story on the concert.  It does not mention that proceeds are still going to those above mentioned organizations.

I received this response from Rosie Moher ([email protected]):

"Thank you for your email. Those specific charities are considered charities by IRS standards and therefore, they have a right to appear as any other 501c3 non profit does. There are over 720,000 501c3 nonprofits (this is just one classification) in the country & we aren't all going to agree on them. The IRS set up specific standards that they have to meet to be given nonprofit status & they have done so. Because this terrorist attack was indeed an act of violence, there are groups that are responding on this level. Some are for peace & against war, others aren't. You can't please everyone all of the time."

I questioned in my response the inclusion of these "charities" as unrelated to relief efforts, and she again responded. She stated that any non-profit could request inclusion on their website. I suggest some folks start contacting pro-2nd Amendment sites to be encouraged to be included. I know I am going to try.
