Why does everyone or every business that makes a donation to something have to have their picture in the paper with a big spread about it? If you're gonna give some little ole dab of money away just do it and shut the hell up about it. No one really cares except whoever is gettin the money.

Would you rather see a mugshot of West Plains Most Wanted Library Book Thief for failing to appear in court, revoking her bond, not paying her monthly fine to the private for profit probation service operating out of the government building, and that she wrote a hot check for her library membership card just to check out the book about weed? It doesn't bother me, but will admit a picture in paper for $100 bucks is cheap publicity...as lame as giving $10 for jumping in a creek and making a video.

Well it bothers the hell out of me. I do like seeing the president of that one bank though. She is hot as heck for an old gal.

They are not donating from their heart. They consider it advertisement for their business. They can kiss my butt.

Personally I do believe your correct , if someone is out for heart felt reasons to help a real cause the last thing they would want to do is boast, of course it's one of those look at us moments and if you think about it the wording on the paper would be like such and such company donated a (Large) sum of money for lets say someone who lost their home due to a fire and I have see as well something saying how much and it too be a good amount of money and basically all I read is look at us as if they are saying their home burnt down no worries the pets died , grandma is in the hospital hanging onto life yet we paid to restore their home "come shop with us" . Like really ?? Have some compassion if your wanting to help others you won't be rewarded if your seeking praise it's called greed . The sad part about all of this is it really does get people going and believing they were really only out to help people and that my friend is called being blind to the truth .

some are out to promote but when something happens and their business goes down the toilet I would think once others spot the greed they won't be pulling to get them back on their feet . Just saying , so it's better if your into donating anything to keep it private and not broadcast it for a better business , building your bank account is hardly what I call giving from the heart .

Umm... guys.... the organization receiving the donation generally calls the quill to take a picture or the organization takes the picture and turns it into the quill themselves. It's publicity for the one receiving the donation as well as an attempt to garner more donations.

It seems like if I donate to anything by mail then my phone starts ringing and my mail box is flooded with everybody and his brother wanting something. So I just quit donating to anything.

Donate to the community foundation. You'll never hear from them unless you're in their click.
