I love going to Church, and Cliff is happy enough to attend with me. He does, however, have a problem with some of the begging-for-funds that goes on there.
Now we both agree that the inspirational message and the lovely singing done by the choir is worth something. Cliff is willing to give them $25 a week; I'd rather give more.
Cliff isn't a stingy person, and I think we could come to a compromise if we could find a trustworthy charity to which we could donate. It could be Christian-associated or not. I don't care, and I doubt that Cliff does.
I just want to know the funds are going to go to people who need it, and not to some rich guy who's running the organization. I like the American Cancer Society and St. Jude's Hospital and Mercy Hospital, in Kansas City: How do I know if they'll use my money wisely?
Is there a watchdog agency where I can go for advice? Do any of you know?
I'll take suggestions. Just give me some way to find out if it's for real.
