...but if you try sometimes, you might find that you get what you need.
So I'm helping my good friend with a luncheon for a Food Bank in our county, and I'm realizing that it's super hard to get donations. Seriously, companies don't want to donate even the slightest amount of goods/services. I feel like beating it into their heads that it's 1) tax deductible (because it's a donation to a 503(c) non-profit), and 2) it'll help their publicity because they're helping the community.
They're being such miserly Scrooges. :(
Thats okay though, because the art department of the local college is donating paintings to raffle off to guests. Surprisingly, they're of pretty good quality, too. Thank goodness people are standing up and doing the right thing.
