now i find this unbelivable i wasnt there
but i have for a long time stopped giving to the salvation
church because they seem unimpressed by the stuff
they are getting
this year i made over 100 hats and scarves knit by machine
gave them to a local church and they gave them to a hostel
got a nice thank you note
i dont need anyone to fall to their knees thanking me
they dont seem impressed with anything
i know that i am punishing the wrong people
i just dont feel good about donating to them
Hi Sylvia ,
I understand how you feel . There are so many charities and needy projects out there that we can all choose which ones we would like to help .
I am sad that if this poor man asked for help and he was refused , then i too would be upset .
I am glad that this bad incident did not hinder you from helping others .
I donate to different places and hospitals . Even to the USA.
Welcome back again and maybe we will see some of your charity hats in the Hat Thread
