A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money
This is to bring in your kind notice that I have tried to take the furniture from Mississauga Furniture Bank here in Mississauga but they have refused to me. I pleaded to them, I requested them with tears and could not sleep because I was shocked as to why a charity can be so hard and rude.
My only mistake was that I ordered them some items when there were very limited choice and no good stuff and I refused 5 days before they were to come to my house to drop it because they had new stuff and they had then wider choice. My previously ordered stuff was not boarded on truck, just moved from one room to another. Stuff was not on way. Stuff was not delivered to me that I was refusing. I only know that I am needful person who is deprived of furniture I needed badly and that too by charity organisation and I felt very bad. I will never forget this and will never forgive them.
Frustrated then I wrote on their Facebook that they are not helping deprived people, they blocked me and deleted my messages. So, I did stop writing them and then my case worker , asked me if I want to forget about that or re request them. I said no I would like to again request them. Today, she spoke to me and said that they refused. My case worker told me that they are now not comfortable with facebook message, I left where I only asked them to be kind as they are in business of charity, after which they blocked me and deleted my message and they have requested me not to send any messages or post anything about them. But Why? There is freedom of Speech and I am speaking truth. Am I refused because I am not white? Those who have car can go there and see items and select and I could not refuse even 5 days before? I am feeling neglected.
I wrote request letters to Laura Reeves who is founder of this Organisation but she never replied. I requested her again. I kept requesting them for about 5-6 days and I was feeling very low because I needed those furniture items and in spite of repeated requests they were not giving me. I also mentioned that once my toddler kids start going to school, I will do voluntary work in their organisation but please give me furniture but they did not reply me.
Governement should not be giving license of charity to rude people who only want to use it as tool for publicity. Charity is done to help people not to promote the owners or its members. I feel I do much better charity than they do as I do it fomr my pocket, from my home and still never boost about it. They take old stuff from people and companies to help people and then they refuse needies. Is this called generosity?
