In Lavender we are still talking about it – yes about ABUSE.
And here in Namibia we are feeling the winter creeping up on us.
So many people out there are without blankets and warm clothes . Are you handing some blankets out to the Round Table Collectors – or are you just ignoring the plight ? Either way, you probably have a good reason why you do not want to donate a blanket or funds.
Many reasons have been brought up and ONE in particular stood out. Who says that the money and blankets are really going to those very vulnerable people ?
I must admit, it sent me thinking, who controls all these fundraisings ? How do we know that it is not only a select few who benefit from it ?
Would it not be better to sponsor a family and deliver your funds to them rather than to leave it in someone’s hands whom you have no control over ?
I also wonder if we think about these situations – of the needy ? Or are we merely trying to soothe our conscience ?
