I recently gave a whole heap of baby clothes, wraps, toys, pram & other baby gear that I wasn’t needing anymore to someone I thought was really needy. The story was that their house burnt down & they had hardly anything left from the fire. I kindly donated it all feeling sorry for the family. I soon found out that it was a small fire in the lounge & was caused by the mother falling asleep with a cigarette. There are children in the house as well. This didn’t bother me so much but then I found my stuff for sale on local sale sites eg: gumtree. I really want to say something but don’t have the courage. Not happy jan

  • Thats terrible….I guess the main thing is The spirit in which you gave those items…..we can only ever be responsible for our own actions not this of others and Kama will take care of the rest.

  • Such a shame that you now feel your kind deed has been misguided. Unfortunately some people can act in ways that seem unscrupulous.

  • it would be one thing if they hadn’t asked for them but this behaviour spoils it for the real needy

  • I would speak up for sure. That’s extremely rude. Good on you for being so generous though. It’s horrible how people take advantage of other’s kind acts.

  • Love and hugs are being sent to you for your generous help and kind ways. It was very wrong of this woman but sadly the world has all kinds..But I do believe in what goes around comes around and she will get her karma back.

  • Wow what a thing to have found out, try not to let it effect you as it will come back to you 10 fold and she will be found out in the long run

  • That would be horrible to discover. Certainly not in the spirit that the items were offered.

  • The world is made up of all sorts. I`ve been taken advantage of before by people that have been friends for years, I found, that to some people money means more than friendships, which is very sad. Karma will pay her back.

  • I was just say something the other day to my mum about how I don’t take anyone at face value anymore, and my sympathy levels are at an all time low. I work in pharmacy and the amount of people that lie, cheat and steal is unbelievable.

  • How sad that you think you are helping people and this happens. You still did the kind thing, its the people who you donated the stuff to that should be ashamed of themselves.

  • That is so horrible. You were just being a nice person, and it backfired. Hope this lady gets her bad karma. What a joke.
