CRA changed the way registered charities receipt third party events. That means people donating to the Tour could no longer be receipted by STARS. Nor could I retain any funds to support the tour. I cannot afford to donate the entire expense of the tour alone. So, I'm sad. Heartbroken, really.
I'll get over it.
I believe STARS is an outstanding organization in need of support. I believe we should do all we can to help. I believe I already have.
