Let's Adopt! Global - Exposed

Your legal rights

Never let anyone guilt you into donating to a cause you don't want to. Giving to any charitable or non profit organisation is a personal practice that many people use to bring meaning to their life. People should respect your priorities as a donor.

Never donate to an organization that refuses to give you a copy of it's annual report. Refusal to publicize financial information may mean that the non-profit is hiding something.

Never follow a link through an email to donate, unless you know the person asking for the donation, as there are legitimate third-party services that work with organisations. If you are not sure, contact the organisation directly!

This website was created purely for the purpose of showing the public, on a global scale, that Let's Adopt! Global Incorporated need to be investigated.

We would like everyone to read their rights as donors and then think about what we have shown you on this website.

We suggest that those of you who are concerned contact their local authorities to ask that the records of Let's Adopt Global are made public. All the evidence you need is right here on this website, as well as the following website sources and facebook groups who work very hard to expose Let's Adopt! Global.

Update June 2014 - Some of the sites listed have been removed from the internet, or from public viewing, during the legal battle with Let's Adopt Global. Keep checking back for the results of the defamation suits which will be posted on this website upon the conclusion.

1) Know your rights. That is, the Donor Bill of Rights. There are certain things that donors are entitled to from non-profits like information about where their money is going and answers to questions. Read the Donor Bill of Rights and familiarize yourself with it so that you are a more educated donor when looking for charities. You may want to print out a copy and keep it for
your records.

2) Research the organisation first. It’s always good to make sure you’re donating to a legitimate non-profit organization.

3) Ask for the name, address, phone number and whether or not the organisation is registered. If the presenter claims that it’s registered, get a registration number. An established foundation usually provides the names of the Board of Directors and general contact information.

4) Ask for a copy of their annual report and read over the non-profit's financial information.These are available on-line from organizations like "Guidestar". If 10% or more of a non-profit's income goes toward expenses then your donation may not be benefiting those the organisation claims to help.

5) Make sure the website of the organisation you’re donating to uses encryption technology before entering any sensitive information (i.e. credit card number or bank draft info).

6) Always look at the organisations privacy policy concerning the use of your personal information. Know who’s collecting your information and how they plan to use it.

7) Get a receipt! This allows you to document your donation for tax reasons, and for your own personal records. Not to mention if anything ever does arise, you’ll have the proper “paper trail".

8) Be wary of email solicitations. Always be cautious when you receive a charity donation request by email. Some legitimate charities will email people who have donated before, but never respond to requests where you’ve never donated, unless you are familiar with the organization.

9) To ultimately ensure your money goes where you intend it to go, you should always donate directly to the organization.

10) Be wary of organizations that seem to exist just to promote the non-profit's head or spokesperson. A non-profit should focus on the beneficiaries of its mission.

11) If you have questions or concerns contact your State's Attorney General's Office or Charity Regulator. If you have a concern, the chances are good that others have had concerns too.

12) Ask questions. Check out financial records. Does everything seem in order? Are your questions answered honestly and respectfully? Organisations who are aggressive, defensive or allow others to intimidate people in their defense are best avoided.
