This is probably going to piss people off, but somebody has to do it.
I see that stumptown EF is doing benefits again. Personally I think they should drop the EF name since my mom could say she is Stumptown EF and do a benefit apparently.
When a group is doing a benefit shouldn't they be clear or atleast general idea about what they are doing with the money we are giving them? I think IzVillage is a perfect example of what bad can happen with groups with no accountability or transparency.
Last I heard Stumptown EF was raising money to do what? Buy a pirate ship in their own words! What kind of fairy tale lifestyle benefit is that, why not just use your labor aka work more like some of have too? I find it really troubling that recent Stumptown EF seems to do benefits then disappear for months only to come back asking for more money to do what? Buy a pirate ship, wonder how much a pirate ship costs.
Can we please get some accountability and vision. I'm tired of giving money to groups and feeling like it's just funding their lifestyle.
