Question / Concern
- We occasionally have requests asking Mikey for money to pay for medical and living expenses.
- He is also asked to help promote fundraisers where people will donate money online.
- He is sometimes ask to champion a cause for yarn donations.
If you are needing help with finances and etc, please seek a local agency and/or organization for help. I do not have the resources available to me to research the claims and/or offer financial assistance.
There are many people who try to use fundraising campaigns online to get people to give money to a cause. Some of these fundraising campaigns that are created online don’t do any research to verify the claim. People just sign up and start immediately asking for people to support them. While everything looks legit and I would like to believe that everyone is honest, I simply will not take the risk. We will not advertise any fundraising campaigns on The Crochet Crowd.
If you are looking for yarn donations, you should seek local organizations such as churches and etc. Chances are if you asking for a donation of yarn is that you are intending to use it for charity reasons. Talk to your charity of choice and see if they have opportunities for you to get a donation. You never know, they may have yarn stored somewhere.
