Kids Wish Network: Crunching the numbers

The Kids Wish Network is firing back at AC360. The charity is the focus of a pair of reports this week by Drew Griffin, who found that less than 3 percent of the $127 million the charity has raised actually went to the children it purports to be helping. Along with the Center for Investigative Reporting and the Tampa Bay Times, Drew identified Kids Wish Network as the absolute worst charity when it comes to how little of each dollar raised actually helps the people they claim to care about. Kids Wish Network wouldn’t talk to us on camera but now they’ve posted a letter on their website, bashing our reporting and trying to discredit one of Drew’s sources. Drew takes us through the numbers that he crunched and shows us the math.

Watch part one and part two of Drew's AC360 reports

    ...so, has the IRS started an audit of Kids Wish Network? And if not, why not?
