what to do? funeral donations
As some of you know I have had an uncle and cousin die in the past week or so. My cousin (sister of deceased cousin) has posted the arrangements.

they are requesting donations where my cousin worked in lieu of flowers.
She worked at. http://spanliterature.com


i want to be supportive, I want to contribute in a meaningful way, I want to be respectful of her/their wishes, but I cant stomach donating to this place.

ideas?

this is the same that was worried that god wouldnt let her into heaven because she was gay, possibly an alcoholic and drug user. She cleaned up the drugs and alcohol but she should not have had those types of fears while dying.

Absent this request, would you have sent flowers? If not, then no need to do anything at all.

Just because they made a request doesn't require you to do that.

Do what feels right to you. Many times people name a charity instead of having a bazillion dead flowers that essentially go to waste.

Make a contribution to a literacy program or food pantry in her area in her name.

Request doesn't mean required.

How about making believe you didn't get the message and send the flowers anyway?
