I'm sure by now everyone has heard about the unthinkable shooting in Newtown, CT. I haven't mentioned it up till now because it's been talked about all over the place and what can you really say... There are no words that will really express the profound sadness as a parent about such a tragedy which was simply allowed to happen.
But on to my question for you...it seems there are places to "donate" all over the net now. I have received 3 requests so far (through my Etsy store) to donate goods so people can make items to sell ~ the proceeds of these sales to go to the fund for the families.
I don't know any of these people who have sent the requests, they are basically strangers crawling out of the woodwork.
What would you do?
Personally, I am thinkin that if you want to donate to a cause you should go directly to that cause, not purchase something from someone who says they will donate it to the cause. But maybe I'm being a bit too cynical...
What are your opinions?
