Charity choices

first_imgIt was a sweet act of charity. But why can’t the Children’s Museum can’t get some, too? The museum has been plagued by money problems throughout its development. And now officials say sluggish fundraising could put off the planned opening until as late as spring 2008. Why doesn’t the plight of this important cultural gem stir the same sort of generosity as Holzer’s sad tale? Perhaps it’s because personal stories touch people more than institutional ones. But the lives of thousands of individual kids will be greatly enriched when the museum is built, and that ought to stir enough generosity in us to raise final donations to finish this project once and for all. WHAT does the Children’s Museum of Los Angeles have to do to get people to open up their wallets so the project can finally open? Put a dog in a freezer? Not to suggest that any of the people raising funds to finish the museum home at Hansen Dam would ever consider engaging in animal cruelty, of course. But it’s curious to note what moves people to give to good causes – and what doesn’t. An example of the former is the story of Kimberly Holzer’s unfortunate Chihuahua, Roxy, who nearly died after burglars stuck her in a freezer while cleaning out Holzer’s Lancaster home. Holzer’s having to endure such a hardship – while she’s pregnant with twins and her husband is serving in Afghanistan – touched sheriff’s station employees so much that they donated $800 and a bag of dog toys to help her back on her feet. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
