^ Very understanding of you, Sis. Thanks.
I think giving money to a worthy cause is a pretty good reason to be followed, anyway.
There are SO many charities & disaster-relief funds out there these days, it's necessary to give it a different twist to be noticed. I think TwitChange is a great idea. If everyone took a negative view of the auction, nothing would be raised for the charity. It'd be a bit of a bummer for the celebs involved too, because they obviously believe strongly in the cause.
I placed one bid because I wanted to be part of it, knowing that I'd be out-bid in the remaining 5 days & wouldn't be able to afford to go higher. But I'm proud to have been a small part of helping to raise money for kids in need. I believe the charity is worth it. And I believe Simon is worth it; I am
an enthusiastic (but respectful) fangirl after all, & I make no apologies for that.
And yes, I've given to plenty of other charities over the years without any "prizes" or "benefits" coming back to myself, so I don't feel my motivations were selfish. (Though I may be a little crazy, but that's a separate issue!
Feel the love.
dolfyn. (Sorry for the minor rant, but I was slightly upset by the negativity aimed at this, especially since I'm the only one on the forum to have made a bid or at least mention that I did. So yeah, I took it personally.)
