I feel very weird broadcasting amounts of money I’ve donated.
On the one hand: if it shows the level I’m prepared to give, maybe it prompts others to do so as well.
On the other it could be perceived as showing off, or centering myself, and that’s not what I’m interested in at all :/
@patrick FWIW, I think the amounts donated aren’t that relevant to encouraging others (aside from “and I challenge all GROUP to do the same” situations), so much as *where* one donated. Which is sometimes useful to solve “I’d like to help but I’m not sure how” stiction, or cut down on research required. 🤔
@ewenmcneill yeah, I agree with that.
I was following a thing where that seemed to be part of it, and trying to embrace the transparency, but ... I think in future I’ll crop that out.
