Where is the holiday spirit?

For those who weren't at Wednesday's SGA meeting, we passed a 1,000 dollar request as a donation for the Santa Fund. It turned into a heated feud (like pretty much every other budget request), but there was something different about this request then all the other ones we have during the year. A club representative vowed to raise a thousand dollars to prove how easy it is, if everyone just gives a dollar. This individual said he is doing it to give the SGA the money that it "just wasted".
Personally, I'm all for standing up for something and proving your point, but if you are going to raise that money, instead of giving it to the general fund, why not just give it to those who could really use it? There are plenty of different charities that could do great things with money like that, especially in these challenging economic times. For the person who is doing this, whatever money you raise, instead of giving it to SGA to fund some event, I ask that you donate it to either the Santa Fund, or some other organization that would do great things with that money. If you promise to donate the money to charity, I can assure you that you will raise more money and also truly prove your point.
