I've noticed a lot of people on a local news stations FB page wanting to donate to people for Thanksgiving or Christmas, which is great. But most don't want to donate to an organization they want to physically deliver the food and see the family or actually place the toys in the child's hands. Why is this necessary? Why can't you just give and let them retain some dignity and privacy? I've worked with a local charity and when people came in to get their gifts some were so ashamed they cried. It hurts to realize that you've done all you could and it wasn't enough, I knew the stories of some of them so I knew they weren't scamming. Is it really necessary to see the person crying and expressing thanks in order to teach your child about giving? My own children were there one night and they were deeply saddened by the lady hugging her bag and crying. Hell I came home in tears some nights. I just don't understand why people think its better to see the person to "prove" their in need and provide them even more discomfort.
