Have you noticed the lack of Interest in donating to the NAWCC for anything worth while?

It is quite interesting to me that an Organization can not even promote its own restorations and purchasing items of interest.

Perhaps it is another case of the "Silent Majority" sending a message.

Is anyone listening.

I feel like everyone is reaching in my pocket book these days, and in all honesty the NAWCC is pretty far down on my list.

My church and other local charities get the majority of my donation dollars. In all honesty, for the limited amount I have to give, I feel like they are more worth recipients than the NAWCC. When I donate to a horological organization either Chapter 149 or my local chapter gets my money(although my local chapter gets more of my time than anything else).

In the past few days, I've seen a more pressing need in the horological community in the form of Tapp family, and they will likely get any money this Christmas that would have gone to one of the chapters-or for sure to the National.
