ILLINOIS ATTORNEY GENERAL LISA MADIGAN, THE F-T-C, AND HER COLLEAGUES ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE CRACKING DOWN ON FRAUDULENT CHARITIES FOR VETERANS. 
 
THE EFFORT IS CALLED “OPERATION DONATE WITH HONOR” AND TARGETS CHARITIES THAT FALSELY CLAIM THEY ARE RAISING MONEY FOR VETERANS AND SERVICE MEMBERS. ATTORNEY GENERAL MADIGAN SAYS THERE ARE MANY GOOD GROUPS THAT DO HELP VETS…BUT YOU NEED TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE DONATING. THAT INCLUDES FINDING THE NAME, ADDRESS AND WEBSITE OF THE CHARITY.
