General Discussion / Re: Welcome Neither Here Nor There

Sorry to be so late in saying welcome to the site hope you will find it helpful and maybe at times make you smile. I alway tell new people that the posters here could teach others a thing or two about how to treat others. Not that we are perfect but they are a great bunch with a lot of knowledge and support for others with out judgement.

I am sorry that their behaviour caused you so much stress. I have always found that people who do these kinds of things never see just how they look to others. I don't drink either and have never objected to others who do but at the same time I have never liked to see the sloppy kind of drunks. I wish I could offer some words of wisdom but I don't have any other than to say I understand how you feel. I normally think of this kind of thing(drunkeness) as a past time for young people who are trying out their choices and mostly stops when kids come along.

 It is a good cause and I had hoped that it would bring to the fore front that many illness aren't being researched. They used to call them orphans cause no one cared about them. They aren't sexy or popular and if there aren't enough people with them they don't  make money. Drug companies won't spend with out return no matter who much people ask. But it does seem that it has become a easy to post a video and while many do donate to the cause I am willing to bet many only go as far as the video.

General Discussion / Re: Donations to charities

You do need to  check out who you are giving to. There are two kind of charities not for profit (they can't give tax receipts) and the kind that can. Often times it is the tax rules that are very strict in how a charity operates. Their tax returns are open for public eyes. Just because some group says they are not for profit doesn't make it so. Giving can change a life be that human or animal and there are ways to give without one cent leaving your pocket. Give your time, give a good. This year I added to my large garden one row of every veg that I grow for a local soup kitchen. They were very happy to take my produce (which I always seem to have too much of at some point) I got a tax receipt for my effort(something that I would have done any way) and those who needed a hot meal got the benifit of my organic veg. I don't have a lot of extra money but I could give a little time in my garden to help to someone else. There are community gardens who are always looking for help in the harvest of veg for food banks and soup kitchens as well.
 I give my time and a little gas money to a not for profit that transports rescue dogs of a certain breed (there are many of them) they don't pay anyone and every dime goes to the animals for their up keep vet cost, food etc. I check out every place I give to make sure they are the kind of place that I want to say I support.
 For some people it is easier to give money and think of the tax break they are getting and there are places who have lost their way in spending. There are places that are set up to fool people into thinking they are doing good work when they aren't but they aren't the norm nor do they stay under the radar for long Revenue Canada finds them and takes away the very thing that they use to lure people the tax exemption. Yes we must be vigilant in who we give to but must also be careful not to paint all charities with the same brush.

It is always sad when some one makes the choice he did (no matter the reason). My wish is that those who make this choice don't see is that they leave behind those who will forever wonder if they could have done more. It may not be true but they do it along with the grief and pain my hope for his family is that they can support each other. It must be so hard to go through you pain in such a public way with so many people giving opinions about your loved one. I hope that it can help one family get the support they arent' getting now.
