    THANK YOU!

  2. Richard says:

    May we see a breakdown of how much each organization received?

  3. Mike says:

    I already voluntarily support some of these groups, others I would refuse. It is morally wrong to take my money, and the effort required to earn it, and give to groups I do not want to support. Giving it to those I do support is equally wrong and no one else’s business to do, and I resent it.
