It's like these awareness campaigns. I promise, I'm aware of breast cancer. Can we stop the awareness campaign and funnel all the money into research for cures? That must be a huge industry where people are making a ton of money because there are a ton of "awareness" organizations. I am highly suspicious of all of them.
Right on brother!
When I read a decent request to repost a note with a shaming portion or threat to repost, I delete all reference to repost and then share it if it is worthy.
At the DMV I signed up for another 4 years of my license. When you pay you were asked if you want to donate a dollar to organ donation AWARENESS. I said no, the lady paused and gave me a look, I stood firm and signed the charge slip. How the H will donation to awareness of anything do any good? Who isn't already aware of Organ donation?
I threatened to coin my own awareness ribbon for sale. It will be black and will be for awareness of EVERYTHING thus removing all need for other ribbons. It will cost you three dollars to cover everything, cash is accepted.
