To become a Global M.a.o.r.i. Approved Business, Entity or Organisation, the following conditions must be met (see further down).
At present, I am investigating the legitimacy of www.angel.org.nz. I have seen them advertised on TV. In reponse to my question of "where are they getting their referrals for these children?", I was referred to their head office on (09) 520 8600. I tried for two days to contact them, but I was continuously met with a voicemail message that keeps repeating itself, making it impossible to leave a message. So, about 15 minutes ago, I ran their 0800 number again, and spoke with a man. So far, it appears that this organisation is yet another 'scam' in the market for 'money' - like Hospice. I communicated to this man telling him that so far it seems like they are running a scam (words to that effect). The change in his manner confirmed that his ego was bruised, and he gave me another number. (04) 473 5025. I spoke just now with a female named Robin Hutchinson. She tells me she has only been in her position for around 3 weeks, and also could not advise me of the simplest answer of 'where they get their referrals from for children in need'.
I applaud them for their attempt to tackle a situation that is extremely difficult to get your finger on the pulse. However, if their referrals come from Child Youth and Family, who like the NZ media, decides on the angle of a case and then promotes that angle often in complete contradition to the truth, then sadly to say, I will not be trusting this organisation. I have been told by Robin that a female named Kathryn Noble is the person to speak to, and that she will give me a call tomorow. And so, I wait yet another day, just to find out the answer to a very simple question. How do they find out which children are suffering, and where do they get their referrals from?
So far, I think it is appalling that they want the money, but are unable to answer how they find out about these children being abused, and where they get their referrals from. These are the types of charities that I am exposing, even those like World Vision, where it is my belief that much of the money is going to support the people running the organisations, rather than the children who are actually in need. Then, I will want to know what percentage of those children being helped are European, and what percentage are Maori, Polynesian, and other.
Come back soon to see the outcome of my conversation with Kathryn Noble.
1. 10% of all your profits, must go back into the community - no if's, buts or maybes. This is to help you maintain the perspective, that you are in business, thanks to the generosity of others, and including, the never thanked generosity of nature, and natures earth which exists to house all animals - not just people. 10% of your profits each month, will also help you to maintain the perspective of 'moral and ethical business conduct' from the smallest detail of your business, to the greatest - particularly when it comes to placing profits before people - a definate no no. Such moral restoration of our everyday thinking, will generate goodwill among people and our societies, that has been sadly and tragically missing for at least the last 200 years. You are free to invest your 10% profit in any charity of your choosing, provided they are once again, Global M.A.O.R.I. approved in order to ensure that they are not abusing their positions of trust like so many charities I know and believe are. It is important here to recognize however, that in so saying, the 'abuse' may not necessarily be intentional. Chosing a charity of your choice is easy. Naturally, I reiterate, I do not recommend any other charity unless they have been Global M.a.o.r.i. approved, to ensure, that their organisation is 'too legit to quit' in the honesty department. The reason being, there is a lot of fraud going on in charities, and look under C.S.I. for the case studies substantiating these very sad and regretful statements. Some so-called charity organisations are gunning for the highest dollar they can get on second hand items which were donated free. This may seem right to those suffering in hospitals, but it is absolutely wrong when they are stealing from the poor to give to the sick. Poor people, who in times of financial hardship, have no choice but to give their furniture to Hospice, knowing they do not have the money to move their furniture to their new place of accommodation.
2. The manager must agree to abide by a certain code of conduct, in order to keep everyone honest, by showing a public record of how their monies are spent - every, last cent.
3. Optional at this stage: To crack down on theft and vandalism, video surveillance must be operating at all times where financially and morally viable to do so. This protects both the customer and the business owner. All Video surveillance will need to be connected to I.I.G.M.F. Headquarters surveillance channels, to ensure that an independent third party has footage that has not been tampered with. M.a.o.r.i. Police Wardens will then deal with the offenders as per our kaupapa - our moral beliefs as can be identified with under M.O.A. Government - Maori Pirihimana - Maori Police Wardens - left hand menu of homepage.
4. All financial statements must be made available to I.I.G.M.F. for double checking. Even the cash jobs!!!
I.I.G.M.U. aims to build societies of trust, honesty and founded faith - not deception, lies and prejudice based business dealings.
I once saw a European supermarket manager in Orewa, giving away gas bottle away to a man he clearly had 'rapour' with, for $11. They are usually around $45. These are the kinds of deals that people do for you when you run with the same 'click' - usually a 'voting' group, church group, coffee group, etc, and usually those who consider themselves - elitists. This goes on while mothers in the next isle over, are struggling to afford to buy nappies and formula for their babies.
