Freemasons 1/2/19

The Freemasons do their share of philanthropic work. For example, the Shriners are a component of the Masonic organization and funds (about 90%) of the Shriners' Hospital for Children, a hospital that is free for the patients, including transportation and stay for parents, since the day it started. However, the stated purpose of the Freemasons is focused on the members, not the philanthropy, which is quite unusual.
