Say I sold it all. How do you know what I am using the money for? I have sold stuff on the TP to buy Italian orphans Christmas presents. I have sold stuff on the TP to donate to a scholarship fund for children who lost their fathers in a helicopter crash. I sold a few things on Ebay and sent the money to causes I believe in. I have bid and donated a lot of money on charity auctions. I have a few moms out HERE not as fortunate as I and whome I have given diapers and covers to use for free and to keep.
Or maybe I sell it all and buy myself a car
Listen, some people collect china, some pottery, some buy boutique clothing for their children, some people collect shoes. I happen to collect diapers. I do have a damn fine stash and I am proud of it. But to assume that I don't share just seems kind of mean. I know it was done in a gentle way and that is cool, but it is still assuming.
and to the pp who said something about throwing stones- I have not seen that here at all. NO one is saying the op is a bad person if she doesn't giev stuff away or even a good person if she does giev some away. Someone expressed her desire that less fortunate might benefit from that. Big deal. No one here is going to know if she sells it all, gives some away. It isn't our business, but we can still expres our wishes.
