This evening Tuftonboro’s annual Town Meeting voted on article 20, “To see if the town will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of Five Hundred Dollars ($500) to support Mount Washington Valley Supports Recovery.”
I suggested that instead of spending taxpayer money, each of us in attendance should pledge to go home after Town Meeting and make a personal donation of $25. I said that that would raise more money than the article was proposing. I also promised that I would make a $25 donation myself after Town Meeting. I have just donated to the MWV Supports Recovery GoFundMe page:
Article 20 passed as amended by Bob McWhirter to increase the $500 to $2,500.
I urge everyone who believes MWV Supports Recovery is a worthy cause to make their own personal donation to the organization. They are seeking to raise $30,000 on their GoFundMe page. Donate here.
Giving other people’s money away is not charity. Giving your own money is charity.
