The Salvation Army “Woke” itself practically out of business. Contributions are way off thanks to their bright idea to call their white donors racists. That is not a good idea, especially since conservatives are much more generous than Democrats.
So, as a result of their public comments, people are just not contributing money to them as much as they have in the past.
Studies consistently show that Republicans give more than Democrats to private charities. But as any liberal will happily tell you, that doesn’t capture the whole picture. The left, they say, is far more generous than the right. It’s just that they don’t express their concern for the disadvantaged via charitable giving. Rather, they raise taxes and spread the wealth via big government.
So, in other words, Republicans are generous with their own money, but liberals are generous with your money.
The Salvation Army is facing a shortage of toys and donations ahead of the holiday season, and urge communities to find a way to help.
The nonprofit reports it gets 75% of total annual donations during November and December, and they are once again in need of support. That help can come in the form of an online donation at the virtual Northwest Red Kettle.
“There are many reasons why both financial and toy donations are down this year, not the least of which is likely pandemic fatigue and concerns about employment and the future,” said Colonel Cindy Foley of the NW Salvation Army Division. “We are actually trying to provide food, shelter, toys and clothing to double the number of families we served last Christmas, and in the midst of the growing need we are seeing fewer people donating at our virtual and physical kettles.”
Not only is the nonprofit organization short on donations, they also are in desperate need of bell ringers to staff the red kettles seen at businesses around the country.
This whole thing started when the Salvation Army told their donors to reflect on their racism. They discovered what a mistake they had made and they walked back their wokeness, but it was too late.
I know I will never give them another dime. Will you?
