Five people chose to donate to five different charitable organizations: Support the Troops, Breast Cancer, Red Cross, UNICEF and AIDS. They each donated a different amount of money and have different careers. Can you discern their first and last name, charity, donation amount, and their career?

2. $90,000 was donated to Breast Cancer, but not from the governor or the surgeon.
3. UNICEF received $30,000
4. Mr. Gage's wife has been pressuring him to find a job.
5. Donna donated to Support the Troops.
6. The five donators are: The news reporter, Mrs.Vallay, the guy who donated $30,000, Julia Maxwell, and the attorney who contributed no less than $50,000.
7. Chad is not the attorney, but he received a pink ribbon for contributing to the Breast Cancer charity.
8. Tom contributed half as much as the surgeon, but more than the woman who donated to the Red Cross.
9. Donna and her husband, Mr. Rackley, have a nephew fighting in the war overseas.

First off, THANK YOU for this big teaser! I LOVE having a lot of things to put together! Though, I didn't need the last bit in clue #6 ("no less than $50,000"), the first half of clue #8, or the last half of clue #9. ...Keep 'em comin'; We need MORE of these!

I protest vehemently!! No just kidding. U see the 1st (or another) clue says that the surgeon gave THREE TIMES MORE THAN than Ms. Maxwell. However, in the solution, Ms. Maxwell(Julia) gave $20K and the surgeon (Michelle) gave $60K. May I remind you that 60K is THREE TIMES 20K not THREE TIMES MORE THAN 20K. I suggest you either remove the "MORE THAN" OR you simply have Donna(attorney)pay $60K and Michelle(Surgeon) pay $80K. As far as I can see, this answer works just as well and is the ONLY correct answer with the present wording.
