As you all know, I post lots of different kaingaryam related information on regular posts – renovating old temples, gho-rakshana, veda rakshana, supporting some cause etc. In most/all cases, several people reach out to me to publish their activities in the blog so that they would get more visibility and that would reflect in financial support. Some are individuals and some are some trusts etc. I am running this blog in a personal level and I have no trust/organization established to back me up, which I do not need for what I do. I do not have the time and feasibility to ensure this before I share such requests..Consider me as a mailman – I just deliver messages with some basic level of checking..Blog will not take any responsibility for any transactions that happen between the donor and the receiver.
I want to remind all of you and suggest that you ensure with those individuals BEFORE donating about how their trust is structured and if it would support any tax-deduction on the amount that you all donate. Please take this extra step to avoid any confusion at a later stage.
I am writing this as a similar confusion happened to one of our beloved readers, who was kind enough to contribute to a good cause.
Thanks for your cooperation
