There was recently a fundraiser that was dear to the heart of many in my circle.
While discussing the fundraiser, one person we know said he wasn’t going to donate because his wife doesn’t approve of these types of fundraisers.
For the record, I don’t really care what people do and don’t donate money to. I don’t care about people’s finances, I don’t question their charitable outlays. It’s not my business as to the what or how of a person’s finances. To me that is personal, and I certainly don’t want anyone questioning me as to where my money does or doesn’t go.
So I said to the guy- “I totally understand you and your spouse coming to a joint decision on this and totally respect your decision to donate or not to donate.”
Here’s my problem though…
This guy and his wife listed the cause and donation page on their Facebook profile.
While I have no problem with using Facebook for legitimate charities, I’m not sure how I feel about someone who posts a donation page who hasn’t actually donated…
So I guess my question is: Should you highlight a charity on social media that you haven’t personally donated to?
