Big paychecks for there folks!

Unfortunately, all the money these kids raised went directly to the LLS corporate HQ in White Plains, NY. Anytime you plan on donating to ANY charity, always check them out. They are required to file what's known as a 990 form.

These kids were trying to do something good, and hats off to them for trying!

Below is the link to 990 forms filed with the IRS for these guys.
