Do you feel guilty when you pass by a Salvation Army kettle and not donate?
Maybe you only had a credit card with you or you just didn't have extra to give.
yes, but even if i do have change, in todays modern economy, people just don't give as much
I dont normally donate to any charity as I tend to 'give of myself' whenever I can. I know all about charities and how much percentages they work on - very little seems to go to source. This is no judgement because better that some goes to source than none. I like to help those at source.
However, I will always remember when the Salvation Army gave me a cooker and other things to help set me up after a period of homelessness. It is for this reason, that I always give something as I pass. It is my gratitude to the organisation which I feel are genuine in their cause.
I never feel guilty as I pass the charity collection tin. But I do feel upset if I see a homeless person on the street in need of a sandwich or a hot something. If I have money to give, you will find me asking if they need food and there I will be in a local shop purchasing it for them.
It is easy to give money as a way of easing our own conscience, but better to give of yourself with an open heart and with love.
No, the only one who might think ill of you is the one ringing the bell--but you know (or I know) how much has been donated at other places and in other ways.
I give to every kettle I see, or at least try to. If for some reason I don't have any cash with me, I will make sure I go back when I do have extra. So I guess I do feel guilty!
No, I do not.
These " things" are solicitations.................
I will " donate" to children's hospitals, battered women's shelters, animal rescue............and a host of other things that capture my heart.
I will not be " solicated" from, in the name of any cause, though it may be a legimate and worthwhile one.
I will give, what I give.........without being asked. When I give, I do so, without the announcement that I " gave ".
I will not be made to feel guilt.
