Criticism of Amazon.com Fundraiser
“Bottom line is, my tax dollars are supporting the schools and Amazon’s tax dollars are not."
Certainly has a point there. Of course, being a technology guy, I wonder how a brick and mortar bookstore plans on thriving without some serious technology and other local community business generating ideas, but that's really not the point.
In this case, I agree. Not sure really that I have the ability to think it all through right now, but there is something to this. Can you help me think it through?
Additionally, if anyone would like to chime in on if a 'passive' fundraiser like the Amazon.com school fundraiser causes less participation in the main fall fundraisers such as the gift and wrap or cookie dough fundraisers responsible for tens of thousands of dollars each in profit?
