How Low Can You Go?

This time of year you'll find so many posts on Facebook where people state they cannot give their child/children Christmas gifts. They also cry that they need diapers, formula, etc. One such post caught my eye and I almost reached out to them, until I read a comment in the post. They people asking for items received things they asked for. After receiving them, they posted the items for sale in a Facebook tag sale site. The items were for the children, diapers actually. Keep them for the children, don't sell them. Do you give to those in need?

I tend to be quite choosy who I donate to. I've become cynical...when my children were small, my husband worked hard at his job....we didn't rely on charity, but learned to be frugal. Clothing came from hand me downs and thrift shops. We made what we could...we made do. Other siblings were on "welfare" and managed vacations and new clothes....not bitter, but very aware of the disparity.
