You can see those donated items through the glass wall at 121 S Cox Creek Pkwy, Florence, AL 35630 located in: FLORENCE SQUARE. Why they are so lazy? They collected those donation, most of them are brand new. “They” do not have the heart to send those donation to Hurricane Michael affected area. People should not donate if those donated items are staying idle in an office!

Everything is because of Karma and consequences (cause and effect). Now is the time for all reptilians and humans on the Earth to learn the law of universe that is “cause and effect”.
