Donation Disaster

For the most part, I think most of society tries to do what they can to help the less fortunate.

Because most of us don’t have the time to walk down the streets with bags of clothing and food to offer the homeless, we find other means to contribute.

We’ll donate presents to a children’s hospital at Christmas or put loose change in the breast cancer jar at the grocery store or send money to a shelter for battered women.

One of the more common acts of kindness we do is donate clothes and household goods to places like Good Will. It’s simple and (in theory) feels like a selfless act that can help tons of people in need. However, it’s important to do your research before donating to certain charities – particularly the more well-known ones.

As this one woman explains in a thread that has gone viral, donating money or clothes to the Salvation Army might be a huge mistake with dire consequences.



Roger Waters’ Wall

Recently, we at Night Cap published an article that took a poll in which it was largely determined that most musical savants believed Pink Floyd’s DARK SIDE OF THE MOON is the best rock album ever composed.

While this conclusion is certainly up for speculation and subjectivity, it’s hard to argue that Pink Floyd was (and still is) a band comprised of very talented musicians.

Furthermore, they are a band comprised of talented lyricists who wrote their single, “The Wall,” to draw attention and parallels to social, behavioral contrasts.

And, according to band member Roger Waters, the song’s message is more important now than ever before.
