% to cause?

Would like to know if they are doing a 100% less shipping to the cause. I will order a bunch when they answer to my email.

Thanks for posting this. I was on my way home from Prescott on the Saturday eve of this total bummer! Drove right through Yarnell and the fire seemed to be pushing west.

If you click on the web site & click on the decal it says all proceeds will go to the families of the Hot Shots.

Ask questions

Not to be a downer but you should ask questions as to how much of the money is going to the families. Proceeds means after the costs are removed and that is the number you need to know. The Red Cross as great an orginization as it is gets about 4% of the money they are donated to the people who need it and the rest goes to operating costs. Another example is the Live Strong bands that Lance Armstrong pushed... not one cent went to any charity.... they say it is for awareness..... but no one buying one was told that.

I try to give where I can as many people do however it can be surprising how many terrible situation are taken advantage of by people taking things or money they shouldn't.

Just my 2 cents... feel free to call me names if you choose.

(copied from www.yarnellfallenfirefighters.com)
Donations – The Diamondback Major League Baseball organization will present a donation check to the Prescott Fire charities tonight at the Whiskey Row Street Dance. Honor Guard will post Colors at 5 PM, followed by the National Anthem, and the check presentation ceremony will take place at 7:30 PM. The Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial Incident Management Team would like to express our gratitude for the huge outpouring of concern from across the country. As of this morning, more than $1.6 million has been received by three firefighter-endorsed organizations: the 100 Club of Arizona, the Wildland Firefighters Foundation, and the United Phoenix Firefighters Association. The official team website is www.yarnellfallenfirefighters.com. Other similar websites have also been created but their intent or credibility has not been verified. We encourage all donors to first check the credibility and confirm their 501C3 status before donating. Credit cards can be used for donations on the official website and 100% of the donations will be given to the 19 families. (Monetary donations are preferred.) We have received many offers to donate poetry and music for the memorial service. We are very appreciative of all offers; however, the program for the memorial service is substantially complete.

I ordered a few a couple days ago. I'm taking off on a 3-week tour of the West, and one will be placed on my GS windscreen for the ride :-)

2 cents well taken here! This is the reason it is better to give strait a large amount and ask people like this "exactly" what is going to the families.

AZ-Tom, just looking out for the families rather than a company that may or may not be trying to profit from a loss. A good thing is that the Company is from the Prescott area and may know or be part of the fire crew family.

So instead of ordering 100 stickers like I will when I hear back "ALL" proceeds go, less shipping, I will wait and see if 10 or 20 will do.

Again, thanks for posting this.
