The report shows that this year the NRS received $824,986 in donations and spent $100,000 on rosacea research which is just over 12% of the total donations which is the second highest percentage spent on rosacea research since the NRS began doing research in 1998. This is an improvement. The report continues to show that two of the three highest paid independent contractors used by the NRS, Glendale Communications Group, Inc., and Park Mailing and Fulfillment, Inc., an affiliate of Glendale, received in 2007 $529,964 which is 64% of the total donations received. This is 3% more than 2006 and whether this is an improvement for the NRS or Glendale you be the judge. Glendale is owned by Sam Huff who is the director of the NRS.
