a quick note

if you receive a fundraising letter from someone you know. and in that letter is self addressed stamped envelope. and you send the envelope with a letter in it saying something to the effect of: sorry, i cant give any money right now but i want you to know that i am hoping all the best for you…
if you do this. you will ruin that person’s day.
if you want to send such a letter. buy your own damn envelope and stamp! really. getting an envelope with your address in my handwriting with the cute lil stamps that i bought — gets me excited that its money! and i really need money because or i wouldnt be sending the damn fundraising letter anyways. and then getting to open the envelope with an announcement that you are broke…totally not cool.
so. for future reference: if you aint got cash to stash. at least buy your own damn envelope and stamp!
and if you dont have enough money to buy a stamped envelope. but if you aint got 50 cents. you might want to be spending your time getting a couple of quarters together. rather than explaining to me how you dont have 50 cents.
