Halifax. At the risk of sounding like you, I am trying really hard to say something constructive about your completely arrogant and ignorant article. I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

Halifax. At the risk of sounding like you, I am trying really hard to say something constructive about your completely arrogant and ignorant article. I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

Of all the bloodsucking corporations or annoying media coverage about Brad Pitt or Miley Cyrus smoking bongs, charities are obviously the most horrible annoyance of them in your opinion. This may surprise you, but these “charitable panhandlers” and charities work very hard to try to give something back to those who are in need.

The true ignorance portrayed in your article comes from the fact that you make the charities seem as if they do nothing for anyone, including yourself.

If you do charity work, what would your fellow charity workers feel like if they read your article? Shame on you for using the amazing gift you’ve been given to write and be heard, and use it to speak poorly of those that we all need the most, especially this time of year.

A more appropriate article might have been “Why are charity donations down this year, and why people are too greedy to help?”
