    How can you tell if one is genuine or not or just exploiting bloggers generosity?

    That goes for politicains running and asking for donations.

    Like one who received several hundred thousand dollars from netroots  and did not file FEC.

    •  You can't really tell (0+ / 0-)

      Maybe you just trust your head, and if they are phonies it will be their loss, not yours.

      •  That is why I have problems w/ posts like Gimps (0+ / 0-)

        Because it will encourage people with bad motives to exploit blogger generosity. I think it should be discourage.

        There must be a mechanism--instead of money,  someone will take time to match them with a local charity/social worker where they can get long term help not just a one time financial help.

          than not contribute at all. Your heart/soul will thank you.
