Kansas City Charity Climax: Questions In The Aftermath Of The JJ's Benefit Blowout!!!
The big Kansas City Charity blowout to benefit JJ's was last night.
TKC CELEBRATES THE CHARITY EFFORT BUT THERE ARE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS THAT REMAIN UNANSWERED IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE JJ'S BENEFIT!!!
Here's what the TKC Blog Community is asking . . .
1. Will There Be A Public Accounting Of How This Money Is Distributed?
When asking for cash from the public, it's not unfair to wonder how it will be spent - Especially when mainstream and citizen media were integral to spreading the word.
2. Will The "Kansas City Restaurant Community" Now Offer Support To Other Lower-Profile Workers In Need Of Support?
Again an AWESOME TKC TIPSTER reminds us that just a few blocks away there was a Chubby's employee shot and killed in front of his restaurant but his family received no offer support from this charity effort or any other for that matter. Also, every year there are dozens of restaurant local workers hurt and sometimes killed while doing (or on the way to) their jobs. This kid of support would help them as well.
3. Can We Please Stop Acting Like The Stupid Lost JJ's Dog Is A Cause For Public Concern?!?!
TKC agrees that support for JJ's workers is a great if non-descriptive cause . . . But the doggie obsession in this story of post-disaster relief is not only a sign that Kansas City would rather bestow their kindness on a mutt rather than people from the urban core but also a reflection of sociopathic tendencies that would offer empathy for animals above humans.
