Re: “Doing Too Much?

Yes I have to agree, I have worked with the Giving Tree for at least 6 years and know every story there is to know; and some people refuse to change to better themselves; so they create stories like the ones above and try to destroy the one thing that could have possibally changed who and what they lived for in the past and present, drugs, abuse, and other situations. The Giving Tree trys to give new focus through strong rendering and expentations. They offer services to thousands of people a month.
They are always willing to help, even if it meens breaking the rules at times, but sometimes breaking the rules is better then letting families freeze on the streets, I can remember several nights recieving call from the Salvation Army asking if we could stick one on the floor, or take a family that just arrived from Texas. Or even CPS for a young adult who was transitioning out of foster care; My question is, if it wasn't for the generosuity of these people where would these people have gone.
I have witnessed first hand people dieing from the cold, burning there cloths to try and stay warm, then there blankets. I have seen children sleeping in shacks and under bushes like animals, having there parents die in the middle of the night and having to be raised by other homeless friends, going to camps where the children only had one set of cloths and no water to take a bath. Children sleeping on the streets and being hurt at night due to homelessness. And to think that people who have no F ING clue what we have done to help, how can you say anything, you just can't speek. The Giving Tree has gone out of its way to support these people, yes maybe we took a toy from a child who had 20 and gave one to another who had none but never did we take for ourselves. And this was only with the child's permission. People we have liars and we have those who choose to suceed. And The Giving Tree is not among the liars, every dollar given has gone to the community one way or another. People can't even begin to understand just how much a organization spends on trying to help thousands of people a month. Its not just about the one who desided she didn't want to work in the program and due her part and make something of her life, she chose the easy way out and crated a group of liars to make them seem injured by the people who took her in, in the first place gave her child christmas and a place to live, but she didn't want to due anything but lay round all day and watch tv. Like so many others, who want there pipe and someone to pay there way. Sorry Libby and The Giving Tree are focused on the ones who want to help themselves, not the drunk and drug adicts that don't want help. I can remeber going o Nogalas with Libby and some others including Robert Parks and handing out thousands of items to the homeless living in the dump, I'm sure no one talked to much about these events due to public harassment, but I seen lives changed kids recieving a bar of soap; acting like they had been given $50.00 and meet serveral orphans who's parents died due to living outside homeless.

So people think about it, if you don't know the whole story then don't try to make one.
If your not doing, then shut the hell up.
If you thing the Giving Tree is a corupt organization then you need to volunteer there.
I have 10,000 plus photos of us doing, you'll have what? Lies and deception in your hearts.
I hope the Giving Tree survives these attacks, for our communitys sake.
