|ASPCA- Help Directly|
The ASPCA could sure use some help about now. No "middleman" is needed! If you want to be sure that any donations you give go to them, the best way to donate is to do so directly!
ASPCA reminds all that too many times people that collect for this cause, lose track of portions of the money they are collecting.
If someone says "I am collecting for Humane Society, will you donate?".... or other organizations, say "Thanks for reminding me!" and donate to the organization yourself!
Want more info? touch the link I provided above!
I expect follow up blogs in agreement, still reminding you that you can donate through other agents in SL and elsewhere. I will join the ASPCA in their encouragement to go to the source.
On one hand you can donate direct. On the other hand... well there is no other hand! (beware of "buy my wares, and I will donate some to charity!")

1. YAY! I never give when people say they are collecting for a cause. I give the money directly!

4. Five minutes after I read this I got a Facebook request to donate to someone's animal rights cause. I touched the donate button, and was led to a paypal site, that was not the Organizations. I questioned the lady, and her response was; " I am doing it this way so I can pool all of the funds, and make one big meaningful donation."
This made me laugh as I just read your post!
