I believe whatever they advertise is real, abuse, poverty etc, however a lot of the charities are scams or poorly run. Many only give cents on the dollar to the charity. Saw a documentary on the United Way and the leader is a multi millionaire.

12 Shockingly High Nonprofit CEO Salaries
From the link above.
Several states, including New York, New Jersey, Florida and Massachusetts, have pushed legislation to limit the salary of nonprofit CEOs who accept public funding. Florida pushed for a limit of $129,972, while Massachusetts suggested $500,000 (Forbes). New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told Forbes, “These regulations will allow the state government to identify and stop the few providers that pocket taxpayer dollars rather than use them to serve the public.”
Pathetic when you have to have Government regulate / oversee charities.
