I know everyone that tags, has bake sales, fund raisers, etc etc are all for great causes, I have no doubt at all.
I would just like to be able to drive thru town, do my shopping, pay my bills and just pass by without feeling guilty about and having to give to some charity. I have gave till I can't give any more. I have my own bills, kids to raise, ties to the church to pay. Not to mention gas prices, electric and gas bills are high because of winter, paying for my medicine, Getting Christmas paid for that I also lend a helping hand to family members and other charities and church.
What I am saying can I have a Saturday without having to feel guilty. Or at least be able to drive thru town without someone waving signs at me.
This is not aimed at todays actives, just "ALL" of tagging, bake sales, hotdog sales in general.
Just asking

I agree with u on one account, the tags, bake sales, etc are absolutely for great causes. That is the ONLY part of ur statement I therefore agree with. U refer to ur tithing to ur church, & ur charity assistance. Let me ask you this, would Jesus be proud of u for getting on topix displaying ur frustration with charity. When our biggest works should be for PEOPLE. Let me say this if u dont have to give I do know God knows rather that to be false or not. But if u feel so guilty, how about u get out & help those that have giving hearts, giving is just not monetary, giving is in gifts of the heart. & to be honest if ur giving because u simply feel guilt, ur moneys not much good, for God tells us to give with a merry heart! If ur begrudgingly giving. Do everyone a favor & KEEP IT!! Use the back streets. I for one am PROUD to be from a community who has a giving heart, who care for their fellow man. I want u to promise me one thing, go to ur prayer closet & seek God on this one. Because I think he looks downn those who are complaining of giving what he has so freely given unto you. ITS NOT URS, its his! & pray that you urself will see increase to where giving isnt such a inconvenience for you! A quarter goes along way when give with the right heart!! Just saying!! Let me close in saying, there is sooooo much more to complain about in our world today, helping of others is NOT one of those! Id like to think one day someone will help u in ur time of need. Study & find urself approved in Gods word, cause I promise u this post didnt come from the Father nor is it his will to see such strife. I see no harm. THANK YOU to those who go the extra mile to stand n wave those signs!! May God bless u in pure abundance, lacking nothing!!

I know some of the people that has been tagging and its for a wonderful cause, what if it was your child you would do whatever it took to get help, Im no Christian and pay no ties but in my opinion God would want you to help someone that is in need instead of giving your 10% to a church
Im not saying just give your money to anyone and everyone that is tagging but we all know that the ones that has been tagging is in great need they are trying to save a life of a loved one and Im sure if something ever happen to one of your family members and you had to stand in the road to beg as you called it, they would be one of the first ones to stop and give because they know just how important it is to be there. I know if it was my child I would do what ever it took to help them and Im sure if you have a heart you would to. not trying to make you feel guilty just trying to make you see from their point of view. God bless you and your family and I pray you never have to tag for a loved one. and to the ones that have been tagging I wish you the best of luck and God Bless you and your family, praying each and every day for you all.

Some of the tagging should be stopped not the ones to help families in need, however the sports and other activities. I also, hate to be stopped and a sign stuck up to my car window. They stop you coming and going. To me it is a nuisance. I dont give a cracker if Little Johnnie goes to band camp get real. I do help people when I can but like the other poster I don't like to be made feel bad when I can't.
Also, this is the worst place ever for selling junk to raise funds. The way I see it it just takes advantage of people that want to do good.

I tag for Breast Cancer every year to help raise money to pay for women of Wv to receive mamograms....we don't ask you to donate a big amount .... a dollar I don't think will make or break anybody...but just look at it this way ...if fifty cars each give you a dollar that pays for one woman's mamogram...a little price to pay for maybe helping save a life... give change it all adds up....Most of the time It is selfless people out tagging for people in need .... it is not like it is for themself.... ....so when people are tagging please give something...whatever you can give and really with everything going on in this world today if that is the only thing that bothers you .... you have nothing to worry about...just drive on by...thank you very much and I will see everybody in October to do my tagging for a cause that is very near and dear to my heart...thanks in advance.

They wait till the first of the month also. They make sure to take a advantage of people with checks while the cash is fresh in their pockets.

Look you can't drive or go anywhere without getting hit up 6 times on a first of month Saturday. I mean come on now, aren't we hit on enough?

Have a bake sell at your church, have a concert, put on a show but standing in the street and hanging around the super markets where we "have" to go. If I give I would like it to my choice, not something were it feels like a toll road.

You people that want to complain or give just because you feel so guilty should think before typing and keep your money and not give ! Some people have hearts and god will bless those with! And when your in need don't ask for anything do it on your own! I personally am proud to be from man and see the support system our town has for families in need! You all with negative comments should feel ashamed !! that is pathetic ! Some reason it doesn't amaze me that the effort that was put into today's fundraiser And the dedication out in this weather was looked down on from some idiot in our area!

Heaven forbid take a dollar from somebody who just got thier check to help a family in need, but they will break thier necks to pile up in Walmart!! I hate going anywhere on check day !! Tagging and bake sales don't bother me half as bad as the people that flock out after they get thier checks!! Nobody HAS to give anything!! And getting on here and ranting about it is jut ignorant!!!! These families suffered enough without having to deal with cheap people ranting about giving a dollar! The people who stand out on the freezing cold are beyond generous! Do us all a favor and keep your money!!! There is plenty of giving people around here to make up for your loss

Excuse me! I don't as I said before have a problem with tagging to help a family in need. Like I said before, I should have to be made to feel judge is a better word. Yes, I have heard remarks made as you go by and don't give.
Again, stop asking for sports such as football, cheer leading, and band. There is enough money from games to supply the needs. I also feel, parents should be prepared to pay for is needed before the child signs up.
I have read no where on here anyone said anything about tagging when in need.

To the other poster, God has bless me way beyond my worth and he knows what I give to people in need. Thank you for your concern for me keep praying for me because I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. Striving to
make it home one day.

I would never want to get on here and hurt anyone's feelings, however this tag day and bake sale was for a good cause it wasn't to support a ball team or anything of the sort. This tag day/bake sale was to help pay for funeral costs of a wonderful young lady that was taken suddenly and way to soon. Please have a heart and stop discussing this as I'm sure it is breaking her families heart's and causing them more pain than they are already going through. I myself am thankful that she had friends that were so giving and caring that they gave of their time and spent their Saturday doing this for her family. I am sure you have been a great blessing to them. These people are wonderful and if anyone one of us needed anything they would be out there doing this for us, some of them have proven this in the past. So please try and put yourselves in this families shoes and ask yourself would you want to read what is being said on this subject?

I never meant this topic to single anyone or particular group out. I am positive they all have good reason to fundraiser. All I am saying why inflict your arm twisting tactics on the rest of us that are just trying to get by ourself. I don't need people strategically placed at critical points in town that you have to deal with em. If you wanna fundraiser for whatever purpose go have it where all that want to donate or participate can enjoy it. Advertise, use facebook or whatever. Please stop using locations at the grocery store, drug store, and intersections that rest of have to use. If you were a homeless person panhandling in front of these stores they would ask you to leave. I for one would like to have option to participate with you or ignore you.

If you didn't want to hurt any feelings, you should have waited until another time to post something on here. You knew who the tag day was for, It's disgraceful, if you don't want to donate,DRIVE ON BY, its that simple. But I am sure a lot of peoples feelings were hurt over this topic. Like they said I hope you have enough money for a funeral or diaster(like a fire) to pay for or replace everyhting you've lost.

So sorry about the loss of that young lady Sarah Morgan. But this is my opinion if she was employed she should have taken her out a small life insurane policy which would have not cost her no more than 25.00 per month. And I'm sick and tired of every weekend you go thru Man and their out bumming and begging for money. Don't people realize that most people have it hard and don't even have enough money to take care of their own family. I think they need to do away with bumming. Most everyone has it hard. Just saying
your comments are rude and judgmental. Shall I remind you, you reap what you sow!!!

Bottom line so sorry about the death of this young lady. But remember you don't have to be old to die and most people waste 25.00 per month on nothing. And to me her parents should have made sure that their children had a life insurance policy. Sorry I know I took one out on all my children from the time they were born. And most well educated parents make sure that their children have life insurance.
I ould like some information on this life insurance for $25.00 a month, I sure can't find any for that, unless its a $1,000.00 coverage. I can put $25 a month in a jar and save $1,000 in a year..

Dear Single Mom, Don't feel bad that your morals are above most of the people who donate. But you should remember, these are public roads paid for by the taxpayers, not just you. Being so concerned about it being the first of the month, I'm sure you don't receive any welfare, food stamps or free medical for your children which is paid for by the public and THEIR tax dollars. So if you are ashamed to drive by and not donate that is your decision, but you should refuse all the help that comes from the taxpayers. Have a nice day and don't be ashamed. Most everyone needs help at one time or another.

it's a shame a self proclaimed well educated parent is so immoral, rude, self righteous and judgmental. And I suppose you have NEVER received any HELP from anyone??? Yeah right!!! Ur day is coming!!!!!
