Do Your Homework Before Donating – 22 July 2007

The other day, we received a slick mailing from a very powerful, wealthy “wildlife” organization that was started by hunters and continues to be pro-hunting. Yet this fact is not mentioned in the mailing.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to check very carefully before you decide to support a group. As far as I’m concerned, any group that talks about “wildlife,” “restoration,” “conservation,” “protection,” “habitat,” et cetera raises the proverbial red flags.

There are so many well-meaning people who see the cute animals in the photos of these mailings and wrongfully assume that they are from humane organizations. How upset they would be to find out where their money is really going!

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
