Ever seen the movie that has 1 person help 3 people.. then those 3 people help 3 people each.. and pass it on?

So now he recieved help and made it big. He should understand how much getting help means. Why give money back to wildcats again? Do they need his help? no!
Why not try to HELP someone else, and let them stand on their feet, like he did?

Whatever portion you will be donating to them.. for them.. it's chump change.
They get millions more from billionaires, sponsors, program, gov't and all that. Your money means nothing much to them.

However, your money, no matter how little, could actually feed a few kids in Africa. You could donate to some hospital where the money is actually getting medical equipments to help lives.

So what did you learn from your university?
that donating to an already rich and stable university, where your money won't be seen for any good uses- maybe buy some toilet papers
is better than donating to actually help kids and causes?

the efficiency of $1 dollar to a university and to a charity foundation is very much different. Think about what $1 can do for each of them.

Regardless of how much you appreciate your university, money isn't the way to thank them.You can show the world how your university educated you by donating change to them... or actually make a change to the world.

Your money, your choice.


You act like I wouldn't donate to other charities or causes. Yes, my money, my choice. Where you come to the conclusion where my money is wasted is out of bounds and unfounded. If you look at things at where it's most efficient versus what is more important, then I can see where you'll have problems in life.

Where you decide to lecture me about how to spend my money is not only egregious, but pompous and pretentious as well.

So what makes you think RJ hasn't donated some money to charity? Why the fk should he give them a big chunk?

Do you even know what the money is going towards? The practice facility is not only for the team, ignoramus. It'll probably be used to run camps for kids and used to hold other events that benefit people outside of the university and those part of the community. You come off all high and mighty but you probably don't even understand how a common facility can be used for multi-purposes. If in the end it promotes a higher facilitation of campus activities and as well as non-school related, then it's more than worth it.

Oh, get off your ****in moral high horse. Who are you to determine the best uses for someone's money. There's nothing wrong giving back to the people who made you what you are. Going back to an earlier post, do you think it's wrong that people buy their parents houses? Maybe we should just appoint you as America's Minster of Charity so you can determine who in the world needs the most charity.

Oh I get it. So we actually haven't lost our ability to detect 'sarcasm', because you're using this 'sarcasm' in this very sentence. You may be smart kwajo, but you won't be getting such parlor tricks past me.

It's kind of hard to detect sarcasm in text when you write in a straightforward manner without one of these: :rollingeyes:

I've already stated, your money, your choice.
If you wish to waste on smth like that, more power to you.
And whats more important vs efficient?
You think building another gym for more college students to play ball at is more important than feeding hungry kids with no clothing?

Ok good for you. Your education has done good for you.
