Hi there! Thank you for all that you do!

Serious question here: My family operates a foundation and the organization you work with has come up recently. After a bit of healthy debate, I had discovered that a large percentage of funds raised ~25% is put back into fund raising rather than for the mission of the organization.

This is rather troubling as we tend to like >90% on mission. I'm curious from your perspective as a volunteer how you think resources are handled by Mercy. Are there scarcities of resources on board that could otherwise be solved ifore of fund raising went towards your actual mission?

The med student of me loves the idea of Mercy ships, but the more business/charity side of me is a tad skeptical.
