I'm so upset right now! My stomach is doing circles as I type this.
A canvasser for a children's charity came to my door and when I told her that I would not donate to her charity, she asked me if I knew any children that had to "go to Toronto this year". I said "No" to which she replied that I was very lucky. I yelled at her that I'm the mother of a handicapped child so how exactly am I lucky. I slammed the door in the woman's face. How dare she try to guilt me into giving her money for her charity when I have enough guilt about my child's condition as is! I fired off an email to the charity.
