Thanks for the response. May I ask you what you mean by the old organization vs. the new One? I'm sorry, but I was unaware that there was a major reorganization. It is all a mystery to me.
My other issue with what you say is that, if we help perpetuate, through donations, a poorly run and inefficient organization seemingly distracted by runaway egos, are we not helping to prevent others from starting alternative efforts for lack of resources?
Just because Amigos del Lago is and was there when Living Lakes exhibited an interest doesn't mean that that must be the one and only local vehicle for change. Often, we become convinced that we can only use one community resource simply because it is there, not, necessarily, because its management is doing a good job for a worthy cause.
After all, we are talking here about only one thing. Saving Lake Chapala. That is a long term task and Living Lakes participation can be put off until such time as the Chapala community has its act together. Otherwise we risk ridicule and exclusion.
If one's dollar can go to save five dogs instead of one by thoughtful allocation among alternative service providers, isn't that the way to go?
And, what, if any, are the alternatives?
Maybe Amigos del Lago is actually doing a good job. If so, what was all that nastiness about last year?
