: Hey Mike!!! Do you not get a tax relief for the donations to charity that you give, or do you just not give? Think about it cause lots of people give only because the government gives some tax releif for that donation. If they did not allow the deduction needy charities would not be around. Whether you agree or not with McD's policies you can not degrade them for helping. you should be thanking them for doing what others do not or will not do. Quite frankly if you really want to get upset with charity donations you should look into Greenpeace and their charity. Did you know that a good portion of their monies recieved goes to political activities and administrations. How does that make you feel about helping people or animals. If you do not believe me then check it out. The Canadian government has been requested to qualify their status as a tax exempt charity because they do not meet the required standards of a charity.
To fight some of the injustice to animals some laws have to be changed that would explain GreenPeace political activity. I am all for it use the money however needed to help fight the fight. You really believe all charity would dry up in incentive at tax time was taken away? That is too bad. Dont put the dollar above all else
