I am frequently asked to donate my pottery to various charities. I was recently sent a letter on expensive paper, asking me to donate some work to our city gallery. I have now received a nice email from same director. I also get asked to give to the Folk Arts Council, which promotes local traditional dance. I also donate to the Manitoba Crafts Council.
I do not donate to the annual Women's Golf Tournament.
Where do you draw the line?
How much do you give? Do you see a benefit in promoting your work, or are you just a kind person?
