Really? You want me to pack up a salt pig, pay for the postage, and ship it off. I don't even know you. You live in another state. How do I know that you aren't looking for free stuff for yourself?
This isn't the first charity request I have received via Etsy and I am sure it won't be the last.
I am getting REALLY good at saying NO.
As artists, we are often living hand to mouth. Some months I wish there was a charity that benefits me. Don't get me wrong... Jeff and I make donations. We have a few groups that we give to every year. Causes that have meaning to us. We don't do it for the exposure, because despite what many beggars, I mean solicitors, will tell you... the exposure is miniscule. I also don't give donations to groups that tend to get less than the real value of the work.
That's my rant for the day. Onward to more productive and positive thoughts.
Thanks for listening. Comments welcome.
