    not support your cause. There are too many of them. I have some financial means and I try to give, give, give. But my gosh, I could give away everything I own in a matter of minutes and still miss causes I care about.

      those who care.

      Empathy & humanity are costly. And you're chock full of both, like many here.

      However, your capacity to say that you can't support a cause for a given reason and your capacity to still care about it are important - and you can obviously provide feedback on different causes or issues.
