Harold Camping, the president of Family Radio, had predicted again the coming Judgment Day and rapture event on May 21, 2011. At the center of it all, Camping's organization, Family Radio, is perfectly happy to receive your donation -- and in fact, received $80 million in contributions between 2005 and 2009. Family Radio, a nonprofit Christian radio network based in Oakland, Calif. has about 65 stations across the country, was founded by Camping in 1958.
According to their most recent IRS filings, Family Radio is almost entirely funded by donations, and brought in $18 million in contributions in 2009 alone.It also has assets of more than $104 million, including $34 million in stocks or other publicly traded securities.
As the day drew nearer, followers reported that donations grew, allowing Family Radio to spend millions on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RVs plastered with the doomsday message. According to Associated Press, Marie Exley, who helped put up apocalypse-themed billboards in Israel, Jordan and Lebanon, said the money allowed the nonprofit to reach as many souls as possible.
However, the question is, where the money is going to be used, and how Camping shall use the "donation"?
