I like the idea of even sharing *how* it helped them and their family. I guess when I donate, I want to be able to see how my efforts help in some way, you know?
I did a fundraiser a while ago. I don't want to give a lot of details, but lets say it was raising blankets for local homeless shelters. I had a counter on my blog for a while, and then I did a report back how the deliveries went. In fact, I just received a TY card from one of the places, and I posted that on my Facebook page. I think people like to see the results of their donations.
