Well EB, as a homeless person who still works full time and is having a particularly poop time at the moment I have to say that my sympathy-o-meter is not ticking past "meh" at this time, and this is after my "how to stop being nice?" AskMeFi post.
I would never assume to ask strangers for money. Maybe we just have different standards. I certainly wouldnt make light of u.n. owen's personal circumstances but by the same token, as long as there are people worse off than her they will get my charity.
No disrespect intended but frankly there are people in worse shape than her and they will be all their lives. I will put my effort in to raising their standard of living first.
yes to charitable causes in fleshed out FPP's a la AIDS Day, Tsunami, and internet-wide (worldwide) phenomena as taz points out has happened. No to personal pan-handling of any sort, including sneaking associates links into FPPs to score points or whatever.
