THIS IS PART OF THE STATEMENT THAT MR RASMUSSEN MADE TO THE BAR ASSOCIATION… YET IF THEY HAD BOTHERED TO ACTUALLY INVESTIGATE THEY WOULD’VE MOST CERTAINLY FOUND THIS. ISN’T THE BOARD MADE UP OF LAWYERS? SO BACK TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION? WHY IS IT IF I CAN FIND ALL THIS INFO ON LINE, WHY CANT THE WASHINGTON STATE BAR ASSOCIATION? TO UNDERSTAND THEIR GOOD OLD BOY CODE OF HONOR IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THERE HAS ONE BEEN ONE CASE OF A PROSECUTOR EVER REPRIMANDED IN THE STATE OF WASHNGTON: JUST TO CLARIFY, THE WSBA HAS ONLY REPRIMANDED ONE PROSECUTOR EVER IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF OUR STATE EVEN THOUGH THOUSANDS OF CASES BEFORE THE APPELLATE COURTS CLEARLY SHOW PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT

Tim Rasmussen: “I am a board member of Water for Life International”… “I have never solicited or accepted any donations from any Washington criminal defense attorney for Water For Life International.” …. “I have accepted donations from Washington criminal defense attorneys who are friends to assist an orphanage in Guatemala. “… To do that I asked people I knew to donate to International Children’s Care for the Guatemalan facility.” All donors received a receipt for their in-kind donation directly from International Children’s Care” …”We pooled our resources and bought things for the campus and children. . . . “We sent the things in containers of equipment being sent to the orphanage by the drilling project.” . .. “ I did not benefit in any way, directly or indirectly from any contribution . .”.. “The Guatemalan Orphanage …is owned and operated by International Children’s Care which is based in Vancouver, Washington.”… “I am not connected to them in any way … except I have made donations and solicit donations from friends to assist the orphanage in Guatemala.”.

WATER FOR LIFE
“Container Travails – By Tim Rasmussen”
The container left Spokane for Guatemala on Dec 18. In it was the diesel air cooled engine, more steel well casing, stems of tools, welders, parts, 10 new hand pumps, the special deep well pump for JabonChe, and of course, some things for the orphanage.
We had been told the container shipment would take about 21 days, so Gary Bartholomew was expecting the container would arrive in the second week of January. That week and the next came and went, and still there was no word about the container. Inquires to our shipping agent revealed that the container had been offloaded in Mexico and not put back on the ship. The explanation was vague about why it came off the ship and even more vague about when it would be put back on a ship We were assured however, it would be on the next ship to Guatemala, whenever that would be be!
On January 21, Annette and I left Guatemala. It was a long 23 hour shuttle on and off planes from Flores to Cancun to Houston to San Francisco to Spokane. About a week after we got home, Gary was told the container had come into the country and was in the customs process. At least it had made it into the country.
The container was in the customs process for one week and no word. Then the shipping agent told us that for some reason, the container had been selected for special inventory inspection. The reason behind this selection was unknown, but maybe because it had made an unscheduled stop in Mexico. They insisted on checking on 75% of the contents. There was nothing to do but wait.
Finally on about Feb 15, Gary was told the container would be released immediately upon payment of about $7,000 US. There were the usual charges for storage during the inspection, the inspection itself, and a fee for this and a fee for that. Then he was told that if he waited for 2 more days there would be different supervisor and the fee would be about $500 US less! Gary thought for a moment but realized the extra charges and the waiting truck and the fees would make it about a wash. Gary paid the duty and got the shipment out of that den of thieves as quickly as he could. (I guess the word “thieves” is not politically correct, but that is the word that comes to mind.) The container was 58 days in transit, but he was happy we finally had it, until he opened the door.

What a bunch of Crap! What Timothy Rasmussen Doesn’t Say:
International Children’s Care is an organization which works through various partnership organizations. “VERSACARE” is one of its partner organizations. The VERSACARE Board oversees the assets from its Care Center operations and carries out its grant activities through THE VERSAFUND which annually distributes Grants to various supporting ministries and other qualified organizations, primarily within the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. WATER FOR LIFE (Tim Rasmussen is the Chairman of the Board) is a Seventh-day Adventist organization which is operating this year on a 2011 grant of $13,000 from THE VERSAFUND
(See Grant recipients below). VERSACARE is one of the primary partner organizations of INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S CARE (the organization which Tim Rasmussen claims he is not connected with in any way, and that he receives no benefit from directly or indirectly from any donation.)

RCW 19.09.020 Definitions.

When used in this chapter, unless the context otherwise requires:
(1) A “bona fide officer or employee” of a charitable organization is one (a) whose conduct is subject to direct control by such organization; (b) who does not act in the manner of an independent contractor in his or her relation with the organization; and (c) whose compensation is not computed on funds raised or to be raised.

(2) “Charitable organization” means any entity that solicits or collects contributions from the general public where the contribution is or is purported to be used to support a charitable purpose, but does not include any commercial fund-raiser, commercial fund-raising entity, commercial coventurer, or any fund-raising counsel, as defined in this section. Churches and their integrated auxiliaries are not charitable organizations, but are subject to RCW 19.09.100 (12), (15), and (18).

(3) “Charitable purpose” means any religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purpose or any other purpose that is beneficial to the community, including environmental, humanitarian, patriotic, or civic purposes, the support of national or international amateur sports competition, the prevention of cruelty to children or animals, the advancement of social welfare, or the benefit of law enforcement personnel, firefighters, and other persons who protect public safety. The term “charitable” is used in its generally accepted legal sense and includes relief of the poor, the distressed, or the underprivileged; advancement of religion; advancement of education or science; erecting or maintaining public buildings, monuments, or works; lessening the burdens of government; lessening neighborhood tensions; eliminating prejudice and discrimination; defending human and civil rights secured by law; and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.

(4) “Commercial coventurer” means any individual or corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, limited liability company, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or any other legal entity, that:

(c) Represents to prospective purchasers that, if they purchase a good or service from the commercial coventurer, a portion of the sales price or a sum of money or some other specified thing of value will be donated to a named charitable organization; and

(d) Does not ask purchasers to make checks or other instruments payable to a named charitable organization or any entity other than the commercial coventurer itself under its regular commercial name.

(5) “Commercial fund-raiser” or “commercial fund-raising entity” means any entity that for compensation or other consideration within this state directly or indirectly solicits or receives contributions for or on behalf of any charitable organization or charitable purpose, or that is engaged in the business of or is held out to persons in this state as independently engaged in the business of soliciting or receiving contributions for such purposes. However, a commercial coventurer, fund-raising counsel, or consultant is not a commercial fund-raiser or commercial fund-raising entity.

(6) “Compensation” means salaries, wages, fees, commissions, or any other remuneration or valuable consideration.

(7) “Contribution” means the payment, donation, promise, or grant, for consideration or otherwise, of any money or property of any kind or value which contribution is wholly or partly induced by a solicitation. Reference to dollar amounts of “contributions” or “solicitations” in this chapter means in the case of payments or promises to pay for merchandise or rights of any description, the value of the total amount paid or promised to be paid for such merchandise or rights.

(9) “Entity” means an individual, organization, group, association, partnership, corporation, agency or unit of state government, or any combination thereof.

(10) “Fund-raising counsel” or “consultant” means any entity or individual who is retained by a charitable organization, for a fixed fee or rate, that is not computed on a percentage of funds raised, or to be raised, under a written agreement only to plan, advise, consult, or prepare materials for a solicitation of contributions in this state, but who does not manage, conduct, or carry on a fund-raising campaign and who does not solicit contributions or employ, procure, or engage any compensated person to solicit contributions, and who does not at any time have custody or control of contributions. A volunteer, employee, or salaried officer of a charitable organization maintaining a permanent establishment or office in this state is not a fund-raising counsel. An attorney, investment counselor, or banker who advises an individual, corporation, or association to make a charitable contribution is not a fund-raising counsel as a result of the advice.

(11) “General public” or “public” means any individual located in Washington state without a membership or other official relationship with a charitable organization before a solicitation by the charitable organization.
(12) “Membership” means that for the payment of fees, dues, assessments, etc., an organization provides services and confers a bona fide right, privilege, professional standing, honor, or other direct benefit, in addition to the right to vote, elect officers, or hold office. The term “membership” does not include those persons who are granted a membership upon making a contribution as the result of solicitation.

(13) “Other employee” of a charitable organization means any person (a) whose conduct is subject to direct control by such organization; (b) who does not act in the manner of any independent contractor in his or her relation with the organization; and (c) who is not engaged in the business of or held out to persons in this state as independently engaged in the business of soliciting contributions for charitable purposes or religious activities.
