"When I found that I could earn a certain amount of money on the radio, I realized that the American Friends Service Committee was doing work of the type which I was most interested in." said Eleanor Roosevelt in an April 1935 radio talk. True to her word, she donated much of the money she earned from her radio broadcasting and newspaper column to the American Friends Service Committee.
