Mount Washington Valley Supports Recovery

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.
