Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

Maria was mentioned in a story about athletes and charities--not sure what their point was, but I think Maria handles things well in this area, compared to many others...

Maria Sharapova has a foundation that presently offers scholarships to students from Chernobyl-affected regions of Belarus, where Sharapova has ties. Sharapova’s Foundation website says that the scholarships for select students are at the Belarusian State Academy of Arts and the Belarusian State University, but details at the site are sketchy even a year later. (?)

Ten years ago USA Today looked at more than 250 charities closely affiliated with sports celebrities and found a mixed bag. About 50 percent were considered ‘efficient,’ that is they spent no less than 75% of expenses on actual charitable work. But a goodly chunk seemed to be better at fun raising than fundraising.

USA Today reported that while intentions were often good, few athletes or even their representatives were well prepared for the work of running a charitable foundation.
“Sosa Foundation President Chase acknowledges he made mistakes and figures he’s not alone.

“‘I was running it kind of like a private business. Now I understand there’s a difference. ... One of the IRS guys commented to me, ‘All these athletes start these things, but they never finish them because they don’t understand what it entails... They’re hiring brothers, mothers and fathers.’”

Moreover, the Internal Revenue Service requires a high level of reporting transparency from public and private charities in the United States. The USA Today story detailed cases where athletes were largely uninvolved in charities that carried their name, but because the charity was poorly managed it turned out to be a public relations nightmare for the celebrity.

In short, if they manage their Foundations with probity and prudence, sports celebrities can rightly expect the cause jewel in their endorsement crown to provide a real halo effect. If not, the celebrity foundation can be a crown of thorns.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

Can't wait to see if she actually plays Paris. I'm sure Li Na and Clijsters will be there as well . I would love to have seen Maria up there playing in the finals with Kim .

Hopefully she'll make a good run in one of the slams this year

Seems to be official.
WTF?

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

^^Lol. I'm not saying she's not playing IW. Masha, along with Fed & Rafa, probably won't play until Thursday or Friday, I'm just saying it's freaking STOOPID to play some stupid exo right before (more specifically in the middle of ) an important tournament.
